What’s a Low-Maintenance Lawn?

There are a multitude of grass types with the ability to withstand drought and thrive with little maintenance. Grass like Eco Lawn, Pearl’s Premium, Fleur de Lawn and Bluestem Enviro-turf are all designed to stay green under tough conditions. Whether through deeper roots or low growing clover, they are designed to take a beating.

How Much Water Do You Really Need?

On average, a lawn needs about one to two inches of water a week to thrive. With low-maintenance lawns, those requirements are drastically cut. Once fully grown, a low-maintenance lawn can sustain itself with water once a month, and since many varieties grow slowly, they will only need a trim once a month as well.

How Much Are You Spending?

According to, the average homeowner in the Rio Grande Valley spends between $113-$173 to maintain their lawn. From cutting to watering, the costs can add up, especially on larger plots of land. The installation of a low-maintenance lawn can help curb costs while still achieving a beautiful looking landscape.
