Epson Salt & Lawn Care. For every 100 square feet of lawn, the Dirty Doctor recommends applying half a pound of Epsom salts over the lawn using the spreader. Alternately, combine 1 ounce of Epsom salts with a gallon of water, blend thoroughly, and use a mister to treat the lawn with the mixture. Awesome natural fertilizer!
Thyme Lawn - low maintenance & tough turf alternative
Wooly thyme, among others, makes a perfectly behaved lawn alternative. Sweet smelling, drought tolerant and never needs mowing or fertilizing. What could be better? The feel of it on bare toes is a textural treat, and the look of a happy thyme lawn adds romance and an established feel to the xeric garden. Plant some among pavers too.
