When you let grass clippings fall where you cut them, you’re practicing grasscycling—that is, recycling the grass. Because the clipped grass contains nutrients and moisture, it’s good for your lawn. The clippings decompose fast.
Here are a few benefits of grasscycling:
- Saves work time in your yard: no collecting, raking, or collecting clippings
- Saves on fertilizing: the clipping nutrients do it naturally for free
- Saves on yard waste collection by trucks
- Reduces clippings going to landfills
