Tired of maintaining your browning lawn?
Even as the drought devastates lawns across the southwest, some communities require their residents to maintain a beautiful lawn. If you’re a homeowner, you know this means spending time mowing, edging, fertilizing, and watering the lawn – usually on the weekends.
It’s an uphill battle considering some states and cities have water restrictions in place in effort to conserve water for as a long as possible.
But there’s hope.
It doesn’t need to be this way — there are plenty of low-maintenance alternatives . . . But some homeowners associations require residents to keep a lawn. And plenty of municipalities, like Sarah Baker’s, have strict guidelines on how a lawn should be maintained.
But in the end, much of the pressure to keep and maintain a lawn is self-imposed. Freeing yourself from all those hours on the lawnmower might simply be a matter of realizing that there are alternatives.
Take your weekend back and relieve yourself of the never-ending stress of balancing your check book with the happiness of your community rules. Install a beautiful artificial lawn – you won’t have to water or maintain it and it will maintain its beauty all year round.
