I know, it seems counter-intuitive to our desire to have lawns that look like golf courses, but letting your grass grow a little is good for the earth. Longer grass absorbs more sunlight and grows tougher and thicker grass, which in turn grows longer roots, which means less surface watering is needed to keep it green. It’s a win-win for the grass and a win for your water bill. Better yet, let your lawn turn into an edible garden (that’s what I would do if I had a lawn now) Plus, you can spend less time with the lawn mower – and who doesn’t want that? So this summer, Do One Thing and let your grass grow a little bit longer than usual!
