If people here did not water their lawns

What would this area look like if people here did not water their lawns and adjacent landscaping? Would that be a bad thing? Would it help those in our midst who complain about rain to recognize that we don't get much? To what extent do trees on watered property rely on sprinkler water to survive? What's the key thing to understand about the politics of turf lawns? If you would agree that yards covered in grass aren't really a natural thing here, how did it become a cultural norm?
