LOS ANGELES – The drought in California has forced many to let their lawns dry out.

That includes the grass outside a temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Los Angeles.

What was a lush green lawn is now dried out and brown.

A security guard at the temple said the gardeners stopped watering the lawn about a month ago to save water.

The church spokesperson has not returned requests for comment.

The decision to let the lawn go brown comes as state and local leaders are calling for people to cut down on water usage.
