The circumstance of climate change and the circumstances of California’s drought being clear, the four lawns (of the six on Barbra Streisand’s and James Brolin’s property) that the couple have allowed to desiccate and brown represent the kind of sacrifice everyone has to make. One of the two lawns maintained even with their drastic cutback in water usage continues to be among the most aerial-photographed on the planet. The one by her pool, the smallest of the six, will continue to fascinate some publications, but here is what the four larger lawns look like, watered only minimally to keep trees alive so as not to be fire fodder in the Pacific Coast states’ worst fire season ever.
