Arizona landscapers are urging homeowner associations to adopt landscaping techniques that benefit the environment and save money. For example, Four Peaks Landscape Management Vice President Gene Trog suggests overseeding with rye grass in the fall and allowing the grass to grow until it naturally dies. The technique could result in water savings of up to 40%, he said. Other tips include donating clippings to school agriculture programs and natural pruning of trees and bushes.
