Giant lawn with inefficient spray irrigation on windy hilltop equaled giant water bill. Lawn is reduced by half to allow for grand kids' and grand dogs' rough and tumble play, and equipped with high-efficient sub-surface drip irrigation and Smart controller. The other half of lawn is converted to a Petanque area. Wind-break plantings protect outdoor dining and new custom fire feature.
