We've had to make some tough decisions about our yard since getting the message on water conservation. The first decision we made was to pull back the grassy areas from driveways and paths where grass clippings look messy. This meant we could switch to a mulching blade on the mower and just leave the clippings on the lawn. We never mow off more than a 1/3 of the length of the grass blades and mow only in the evening during hot weather and then water early the following morning. The grass is staying greener through hot, dry spells even with major water cutbacks.

We have invested in a chipper & shredder. All my cuttings go back onto my garden. I keep topping up the mulch, every little helps.
