Time Saving Tips for Maintaining Your Landscape
Improve your garden's beauty, increase your enjoyment and reduce stress by incorporating tasks that provide multiple benefits.
Shred fall leaves and mulch the garden. You'll conserve moisture, suppress weeds and improve the soil as the organic mulch breaks down. Lots of benefits from one task.
Leave clippings on the lawn when mowing. Youll eliminate time spent bagging and disposing, while adding moisture, nutrients and organic matter to the soil. A season's worth of clippings is equal to one fertilization.
Mow fall leaves and leave them on the lawn. Your grass will be fine as long as you can see the grass blades through the leaf pieces. Plus, they add organic matter and nutrients to the soil.
A bit more information: Continue to look for ways to get the most out of every landscape task you perform. Mulching, for example, suppresses weeds, conserves moisture, and helps improve the soil as the organic mulch breaks down. You receive lots of benefits from this one activity.
