Green Tip

Nothing says “summer” like burying your toes in a lush green lawn and breathing in the scent of freshly mown grass. While there is no getting around the fact that beautiful lawns require a lot of water, there are some things you can do to minimize the impact on the environment – and on your wallet.  First, choose a type of grass that is suited to your climate, including the amount of sunlight and rain your area gets. Then over-seed your lawn in the fall by spreading seeds on top of the existing lawn. Contact your local County Extension Service for advice on which grasses will grow best where you live.
