Regardless of your stance on climate change you need look no further than your own backyard or at the water bill to see how the times are changing. In 2014 Arizona recorded the worst drought in its 110-year history of collecting weather-related data. Those statistics and perhaps a little guilt has led many in the Grand Canyon state to roll out the green carpet especially in areas (like around the pool) where grass can be difficult to grow.
