Frugal Living – July 2011

Check out these summertime yard tips. These tips can help your lawn be the best that it can be and also help your wallet!

Service your lawn mower – Regularly clean the air filter and check the oil level to ensure your mower lasts. Also check your blade a few times a year and make sure it isn’t dull.

Check watering habits – If you have a sprinkler system, make sure it only comes on early in the morning or late in the day. Otherwise, you could potentially waste water due to evaporation.

Treat your own yard – Instead of paying a professional to fertilize and spray for weeds, consider doing it yourself.

Plant intentionally – Make sure you plant drought-tolerant plants in sunny areas; plant shade-tolerant plants in shady areas.
