Natural Lawn Care
Take a natural approach to care for your lawn.
2-3" grass height allows the lawn to retain more moisture
Leave grass clippings
Let the clippings fall back onto the lawn. The clippings provide additional nutrients and moisture.
Reduce lawn size
Plant native trees and shrubs. They require a lot less maintenance than lawn once they're established.
Water deeply & less frequently
Lawns only need about an inch of water per week during the summer, including rain to stay green. Let the soil dry out in between waterings to prevent lawn disease and save water.
Let your lawn get a tan
Letting your lawn go dormant in the summer is a great way to reduce your water bill. Water it once a month and it will green up again in the fall.
Choose slow-release organic fertilizer
Fertilize in September when the grass is building root reserves for the following year.
