Homeowners who have used tractors to mow their lawns may wonder about other, more green opportunities in order to care for their grass.
A recent story on AllAboutLawns.com notes that one option may be to use a mechanical push mower, which doesn't use gasoline or electricity.
Of course, this option may not be the most practical for those who have larger lawns, which may be easier to care for with gas- or electric-powered machines. Fortunately, there are other options for maintaining an environmentally friendly lawn.
The article said that one option would be for lawn owners to keep their grasses at a longer length.
"The longer your grass, the better its roots are protected," the site said.
Other experts have noted that keeping a lawn at a higher length may provide other environmental benefits. One obvious one is that people will have to use their tractors less, which decreases the amount of gas they consume.
When finished with mowing, the site also said people may consider leaving grass clippings behind, as they can provide a natural fertilizer for their lawns.
