I wouldn't call Portland sunny, hot and dry. More like cloudy, mild and wet.Why water the lawn then?We have a couple of hot months per year. By "hot" I mean maybe a dozen days above 90, one or two around 100 and a bunch of days in the 80s, with reasonable humidity and little rain. Sometimes September can be quite dry as well, although not as hot. That's why we live here -- we'll take many cool rainy months to avoid many hot, humid ones. We don't like to perspire. But lawns would go brown during those brief shining moments if not watered. I'm OK with brown lawns but DW would rather pay the big water bills to keep the lawns half green until the rains start again.--fleg
