A law that verdant in Phoenix? I don't think so!

I will admit that most of our laws are not that verdant. There are definitely some surprisingly green areas in Phoenix. Lawns and shrubs and trees, oh my. I will admit my own lawn runs to rock and weeds but to each their own.

When I was there early in February of '90, my host explained to me why all the yards were edged with little (2"-3") berms. Homeowners weren't allowed to water their lawns, but once a week... Thursdays, as I recall... the municipality sent around a truck to dump a certain amount of water into your yard, and you needed that little berm to retain that which wasn't immediately absorbed.

That may have changed in the intervening years.
