Nope, we don't have grass. Most of the big lots have a grader that runs over it once in a while to clear the weeds. Most of our small empty lots are somewhat maintained.

It's kind of the opposite problem over here, with a housing shortage, and homeowners holding on to their double and triple lots in otherwise dense, high-demand neighborhoods. They value their veggie gardens more than the tens (or hundreds) of thousands they'd get from selling.
