How does your lawn measure up?

In the Carolina Yardstick booklet, we like to encourage homeowners and residents to achieve a "yard" or 36 inches of environmentally friendly landscaping. The lawn, which is such a large area in many Southern landscapes, can really factor significantly in that measurement. I want to address mowing heights, watering, fertilizing and pest control and explain how together they can make a huge difference in the appearance and service of a lawn.
