All this requires is taking a little time to plant and be more selective about what you include on your lawn.
Always remove weeds
Not only are weeds a constant eyesore, they can also do a number on the overall health of your plants. They do this by – you guessed it – sucking up an excess amount of the water from existing plant structures. So at the end of the day, the weeds have got to go.

Stones can save you a ton of money on water. Stones stay cooler longer and prevent your plants from overheating and also help ensure that water doesn’t evaporate in hotter temperatures. They also make your landscape look cleaner and more diversified, so there’s mostly certainly an aesthetic benefit to using them.
Remember at the end of the day, Gardens are meant to bring you happiness, not headaches. Use these tips and you’ll help cut down on that water bill and have a happier, healthier garden and lawn.
