SAVE on Landscape Maintenance. In our current drought we need all the tips we can get:

Nourish efficiently

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; and
  • investing in a self-mulching lawn mower and letting the cuttings fertilize the lawn.

Plant effectively

Reduce the size of your lawn or remove it altogether to cut costs. 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 full grown plants; and
  • trees and plants native to your area to eliminate the need for extraneous watering, a practice known as xeriscaping.
Balance out your yard beautification costs by planting fruit trees and a vegetable garden. Growing food reduces grocery costs while adding color and greenery to your yard.
Create a beautiful yard with low maintenance costs to attract potential buyers.
