Arizona yards don’t look anything like those in the Midwest.  In fact, don’t call it a lawn, because according to Merriam-Webster a lawn is:

ground (as around a house or in a garden or park) that is covered with grass and is kept mowed.

No grass and no mowing in most parts of Arizona, water being at a premium.  So a walk around my parents’ yard would be on gravel and you’d see rocks, cacti, and also some trees and flowers.

These look sort of soft and fuzzy, but appearances are definitely deceiving!
