Our summers are hotter than Portland's. Portions of my yard go brown every summer. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on water trying to keep it green, my approach is to not water and just buy $100 of grass seed in the fall. Cheaper this way.

I do that too. Except I don't buy any grass seed, the lawn just comes back the next year. One pretty awesome thing about Seattle is that virtually no one waters their lawn in the summer. Brown lawns are standard.

Not as true in 'burbs. The poor confused people out there tend water their lawns.
