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.

The owners of this Arizona home wanted their own tropical oasis all year long, so they installed artificial grass around an incredibly opulent water feature. Plus Arizona is on schedule to be as dry as California and watering a lawn can be just as extravagant as a trip to the Seychelles.
