4 Steps to a Greener Lawn-
You may think that lawn mowing is nothing more than a nuisance, but it's actually a serious environmental threat. It guzzles gas, emits carbon dioxide, and soaks up our water supply. So how do you go low-impact? Here are 4 ways to get started:
1. Invest in a manual push mower. Today's push mowers are a breeze to operate, require less maintenance than older models, provide a better cut, and use no gas or electricity.
2. Reduce your lawn size by sectioning off an area of your yard for native plants. Their deep root systems keep H20 in the soil cutting back on water time. Plus, they don't need to be mowed.
3. Keep your lawn taller. Allow your lawn to grow 3 to 3 1/2 inches tall. A taller lawn encourages deeper root growth and shades the soil from moisture loss.
4. Collect rainwater. Buy or make your own rain barrel. Use the water you collect to nourish your lawn.
