Grass is Dead - What to do? Don't paint the dirt green! Plant Lavender or other native plants.

How do you feel about people painting their dirt green? I've got to see this to believe it -- check out this Wall Street Journal article.

In Grand Junction, we love lavender -  the wonderful aroma, calming essential oil, and we even have lavender ice cream which is delicious and meditative!
