Q.Drought Resistant Lawn Substitute

Anonymous added on April 19, 2011 | Answered

I live on 7 1/2 acres in Los Angeles. My home is an east coast looking home with an expansive lawn. I’m considering clover because it is drought resistant and needs little fertilizing. I’m having a tough time picturing what five acres of clover would look like and haven’t found any such photos on the Web (acres of clover in front of a home). Might you have some photos to share?

What other drought resistant lawn alternatives (that look close to being lawn) would you suggest? They need to be safe for the local fauna to eat. Of the recommendation you have, how often (and for how long) should they be watered?
