Green Weed Solution

Here’s how to get a “greener” lawn.  Let your grass grown longer before cutting (and then move your mower up a notch or two when you do cut).  Taller grass requires less water (because the root system goes deeper).  It holds water better and is less likely to burn up.  This reduces your water bill and also decreases the demand for water.  It also denies sun to new weeds so they’re less likely to flourish (so you don’t have to use that weed killer which washes off into the watershed).
