As you drive around the block on Saturday afternoons, you might see a variety of mowing techniques. Each homeowner has his or her own preference, as do lawn care companies. You’ll see different patterns, different heights, and some lawns that leave the grass clippings. Are they skipping a step in their lawn care, or is it okay?
The Verdict: Grass Clippings Are Good!
It turns out the people who leave their clippings where they are might actually be helping their lawn more than those who remove them, as they are a natural fertilizer. Afterall, clippings do contain all the essential nutrients your grass needs! As the grass decomposes, it releases water and nutrients into your lawn’s soil, helping your grass grow greener and thicker.
Our one caution: diseases thrive in dark, wet areas, so be caution of how thick your layer of clippings get to prevent an ideal environment for lawn hazards.
