Each of these individual tasks can save money, together, they can save a lot of money.

Use best lawn practices
Think outside the lawn, and create a backyard wildlife habitat. It will cost you very little to get started, it will help to decrease your pest population, and save money on annual lawn care costs. Even if you decide not to go native with your lawn care, using the proper lawn care techniques and practices; not bagging clippings, and proper mowing timetables, will still save a significant amount of money on fertilizers and pesticides.

Saving money at home is a matter of thinking things through. For instance, if you are renting from a self storage, or public storage business, you could probably save a lot of money in the long run by building or buying a storage building for your back yard. It makes little sense to store $500.00 worth of material for 10 years at a rate of $1,200.00 per year, when you could have it safely tucked away in a storage building in your backyard. Building a storage building can be accomplished with a minimum of labor and material expense, buying one from a dealer at a slightly higher cost is still better than paying eternal rent, and even buying one through a rent to own program, although it is more expensive than purchasing it outright, will save money over renting forever!
