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;


-reducing the size of your lawn or removing it all together – less lawn does not mean a more vibrant yard!


-drought-resistant plants;

-seeds or young plants, as they are cheaper than buying fully grown plants; and

-trees and plants native to your are 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!
