This is Florida. We love the green lawns, we love the lush landscape. But these things require lots of water, and sometimes, lots of attention. (Xeriscaping reduces a lot of these needs.)
The problem is... it gets hot here, really hot, and humid. So it's not uncommon for people, as they get older or become less fit (for lack of a better way to put it), to live inside more and more, and go outside to their lawns less and less.
This was the back yard at a home for sale that I visited. You could tell that the owner had become one of those people staying inside, away from the humid heat of Florida. As a result, their lawn and landscaping had really gone downhill. It made me sad to see it.
