In the name of water conservation, the high desert city of Palmdale is expected to pass a new ordinance banning traditional grass front lawns on any new residential projects, according to the Daily News.
Instead, only city-approved drought-tolerant landscaping, native plants and rocks will be legal to use. Ordinances must be heard and voted upon by the City Council twice. On Wednesday, they passed the first reading. A second reading is scheduled for October 15.
