It truly makes a massive difference in my enjoyment of lawn/garden maintenance. I really enjoy gardening - but it does take time, time I would rather not spend doing the most boring (although essential) shit like watering + mowing. I just want to plant and tend to the flowers + plants, heh.
In fact, our garden is shaping up to be the best it ever has been this year. We got all our shit planted on the long weekend, which was followed by much rain. Couldn't have had any better timing.
Yea, my parents when I was growing up thought that a green lawn was a sign of the bourgeoisie... So we never really watered it or kept good care of it besides mowing...
My maternal grandparents place though had a huge in ground system for all their lawns. I was obsessed with that thing when I was a kid haha. Any bit of infrastructure, big or small, I thought was cool.
