San Jose is forcing its residents to cut back on water use during the drought, so one couple found a patriotic solution to their ugly brown lawn by painting an American flag on it.
Claudia Decker and her husband stopped watering their lawn in January. Tired of looking at the patchy turf and dirt, they wanted to increase their curb appeal.
“People are painting their lawns green because of the drought,” Decker told KPIX 5.
Instead of green, the couple painted an American flag on the lawn, in honor of Flag Day. The flag even looks like it has a little Santa Clara Valley breeze rippling through it, and is accurately measured.
