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 and save money on fertilizer, not to mention all that time bagging up lawn cuttings. If you mow frequently, the clippings are short anyway, and will work their way back into 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.
