Reduce the cost of maintaining your lawn while still enjoying beautiful results.

Keeping your yard looking great to increase your home value as well as keep your family and your neighbors happy. A well-maintained lawn is a source of pride in home ownership, but a beautiful lawn doesn’t have to cost a fortune. 

Here are some ways you can maintain a lovely yard for less.

DIY Compost: Compost can keep moisture in, weeds out, and make landscaping look neat and tidy. Look for free sources of compost, such as your local township or landscaping company, or DIY your own.  Collect food scraps, such as vegetable trims, coffee and eggshells, and place them in a out of the way bin. Toss in dead leaves and garden trimmings. Turn over the compost every couple of weeks. Your free compost should be ready to use in a season or two. 

Get Grounded: Decide to lose some of the lawn and convert it to ground cover, which requires very little maintenance or resources. Low growing, these plants create a beautiful carpet of green without the need for much water, food or mowing. Popular ground cover varieties include pachysandra, vinca, carex and various ferns.

Perennial Favorites: Choose perennial plants over annuals. While there is a slightly larger investment up front, over time these flowers, which come back every year, save money. Perennials will also continue to propagate, allowing you to dig them up, divide them and replant, giving you additional flowers for your landscaping.
