When doing lawn maintenance, leave the lawn clippings where they fall, instead of bagging them and throwing them away. The clippings will fertilize the soil, not to mention saving money on fertilizer, and all that time bagging up lawn cuttings. If you mow frequently, the clippings are short anyway, and will work their way back in to the soil without turning brown and messy. For plants, a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch on top of the soil will help hold in water and keep out weeds. Use organic material such as garden or yard waste, or even oyster shells, bricks and stones, to cover the area between plants.
