Wouldn’t you rather spend your weekend doing something other than mowing your lawn? Lawn maintenance slows down naturally in the colder months but during the summer, grass grows very quickly, even with restricted watering. If you skip a week of mowing you end up being that house on the street. But what if there was a grass that didn’t require weekly mowing? You could leave it be and it wouldn’t look out of control in a short amount of time. Here are some of the low maintenance lawns that can grow in Fresno County.
