Reconnecting with nature in a southern California suburb

Between 2014 and 2017, the drought in California led then-Governor Jerry Brown to encourage residents to stop watering their lawns as often and, ideally, to replace grass with less water-intensive plants. I can’t remember precisely when my family stopped watering our lawn in a suburb of San Diego, but I believe it was in or before 2014. We didn’t replace the grass with anything — we simply let it die.
