Frugal Lawn and Mowing Tips

I usually try to read Gerri Willis’ Five Tips and this time it held some nuggets I found particular useful:

1. Use regular fertilizer – Avoid the fanciness of crabgrass and weed killer because it’s usually cheaper to buy those separately. Another bit of information I didn’t know was that if you use those things, the acids in it make it impossible for you to put down seed and have it grow. I wish I knew that because I used weed killer and seed… oh well.

2. Get your lawn drunk – Apparently leftover beer is good for your grass!
