Try Grasscycling - leaving grass clippings on the lawn to decompose.  Grass clippings are mostly water.  When you mow regularly, clippings quickly decompose and release nutrients to fertilize the lawn.  Research shows that when clippings are left on the lawn, one-third less fertilizer is needed to achieve the same color and grass density found on lawns where the clippings are removed.  For ideas please check out this Grasscycling link
