Our society is increasingly concerned about water. Water is a finite natural resource that
is essential to our world, and it is also vital to the lawns we enjoy with our friends and
We talk to thousands of people every day, and we know they're seeking a way to keep their lawns healthy while respecting the environment and conserving water. Can a lawn be smart in how it uses water? Can it use it more efficiently? Can it live with less?
The answer is yes.
A lawn fed regularly grows strong and healthy with deep roots to better absorb water and nutrients. Compared to an unfed lawn, it uses water more efficiently, and makes the most of every drop of water it gets.
Here are four easy tips you can follow to use less water:
- Feed Regularly.Regular feedings of Scotts® Turf Builder® Lawn Food will help build a lawn you and your family can enjoy. It provides the nutrients your lawn needs to crowd out weeds and withstand the stresses of heat, drought and family activity.
- Set your lawn mower to the highest setting. Mowing high (3" or highest mower
setting) allows the grass to develop a deep root system and helps your lawn use water
- Leave the grass clippings on your lawn. This recycles the plant nutrients back into
- Rely on Rain. Your lawn will begin to wilt when water is needed. As much as
possible, take advantage of nature's sprinkler and rely on the rain to water your lawn.
