Keep your lawn and yard pristine without bleeding the green
To stay green, your lawn requires a lot of water and fertilizer. Reduce these costs by:
- watering your lawn only one to two inches per week;
- keeping mower blades sharp and clean to trim grass for maximum moisture retention;
- mowing your lawn to no lower than two to three inches to reduce root exposure and water evaporation;
- investing in a self-mulching lawn mower and letting the cuttings fertilize the lawn; and
- reducing the size of your lawn or removing it altogether — less lawn does not mean a less vibrant yard!
Make your yard green and cost-effective by planting:
- drought-resistant plants;
- seeds or young plants, as they are cheaper than buying fully grown plants; and
- trees and plants native to your area to eliminate the need for extra watering.
Balance out your yard beautification costs by planting fruit trees and a vegetable garden. Growing food reduces grocery costs while adding color and greenery.
Remember, a beautiful, low-maintenance yard attracts buyers!
