California water crisis and some thoughts

In light of the water crisis in California and the restrictions imposed on citizens, I have to tell my wonderful fellow DUers that having a nice lawn made of various grasses that is so beautiful and lush that we can lie down on during a summer afternoon is unsustainable.

I work in the landscape and hardscape industry, which is exploding up here in Idaho, a semi-arid climate, in this location. How long will it be before this arid part of Idaho is in the same shape as California? I work big jobs for former California expatriots who have given up California and have come here because of the love of big lawns, big grass, available water, (for now) and cheap land. This might be a tipping point, where the wealthy goes where the water is.
