Drought: Not watering the lawn

Because of the extreme drought conditions in Australia, I’m doing my bit by refusing to waste water on a lawn. I’m beginning to think I need to find some way to do it (a long hose thru the garage, carrying my grey water perhaps?) because my house/land is on clay, and because its been so dry, the clay is drying out, cracking apart and the topsoil (little than there was) is falling into the holes.
