In support of indigenous landscape architecture

In our current economic malaise, should lawns be illegal. They come at a terrible cost to productivity. Assuming $3/gallon in gas, 1 gallon gas/month/lawn, 1 hr/week/lawn, $24/hr average US wage, 1 lawn/3 Americans, 250 gallons water/lawn/week, our annual costs for 100,000,000 lawns are:
$124,800,000,000 in lost productivity
$3,600,000,000 in fuel cost
1,200,000,000 gallons of wasted fuel
1,300,000,000,000 gallons of water wasted
