Your May Maintenance Tip!

Maintaining a healthy lawn requires plenty of water and fertilizer, but you don’t have to empty your wallet to keep your lawn green. Cut your 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 or three inches to reduce root exposure and water evaporation; and
  • investing in a self-mulching lawn mower to allow the cuttings to fertilize the lawn.

A vibrant yard doesn’t always mean having a lawn, either. Consider replacing your grass with cost-effective alternatives, such as:

  • drought-resistant plants;
  • seeds or young plants, which are cheaper than buying full-grown plants;
  • trees and plants native to your area to eliminate the need for extraneous watering; and
  • fruit trees or a vegetable garden.
