Caring for your lawn and keeping your grass green can become costly. However, it is possible to have the best of both worlds, if you are willing to make small compromises. Instead of abandoning your yard and leaving your grass to die, you can easily cut the cost of your lawn care with these simple tips.

Maintain a Beautiful Lawn With These Money Saving Tips

Use Grass Clippings : If you haven’t heard about grasscycling then you are missing out. What most people don’t know is that grass clippings are 90% water. Instead of bagging them up and throwing them out, leave them on your lawn to help fertilize the grass. You can also combine vegetable scraps and grass clippings to use as mulch around trees or to help enrich your soil. Using something that you already have reduces the amount of spending you have to do.

Long Lasting Plants : Instead of having to buy new plants every year, try getting perennials. Perennials are a type of plant that continue to grow for many years. These plants last a long time meaning that you won’t have to buy new seeds every year which can become costly. Some great perennial plants are Anemones, Bell Flowers and Coreopsis.
