Good luck!


Fertilizing the lawn

According to the article, fertilizing your lawn is a “fast and low cost way to help improve the way your whole yard looks and feels.” For an average of $.03 a square foot, you can apply fertilizer which will help revive grass, help it green faster, and provide a more lush surface. To save money, the article recommends fertilizing early in the season to take advantage of lower prices and maximize your lawn’s growth and watering regularly in the early mornings to prevent it from drying out and extending its life.


Tree planting

According to the article, planting trees can prevent soil erosion and provide shade and cleaner air. They can also boost curb appeal. The average cost to plant a tree is $106 for a small tree delivered and planted. To save money, always check with your utility company to make sure it won’t be in the way of power lines which could result in additional expenses to trim or remove the trees. You should also ask your town or state if they offer programs which provide shade giving trees for free.
