    Lawns are a wonderful place to relax and play as a family, but keeping them green and weed-free can take a lot of work and water and create a lot of waste. Building healthy soil and watering properly are the foundations of a strong lawn that outgrows most weeds and resists other problems with less work, water, fertilizer, pesticide and waste.

    • Mow higher (1-2 inches), mow often and leave the clippings on the lawn.
    • Fertilizer moderately in May and September with organic or slow-release fertilizers.
    • Think twice before using weed and feed or other pesticides.
    • Water deeply to moisten the root zone; let the soil dry out between watering.
    • Revitalize your lawn by aerating, over-seeding and top-dressing with compost.

    Benefits

    • Have a beautiful lawn that out-competes weeds and stays green.
    • Save money on water and lawn care products.
    • Spend less time on maintenance.
