Mow When Needed

Q: How should I care for my lawn?

A: Mow when the grass needs it, at the highest setting on the mower. Grass that's tall shades itself and the soil, so you don't need as much water. Don't fertilize; just use a mulching mower and leave the clippings on the grass. Dig up dandelions by hand.
