The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., voted unanimously to convert the grass at the city's police department to a xeriscape landscape, a form of landscaping that reduces the need for irrigation with the use of native plants. The project is expected to reduce the city's consumption of potable water and help save more than $15,000 in water expenses. Plans for the project were forwarded to the City Council for a decision.
