It seems ridiculous to bag grass clippings and put them out for trash pickup. Grass clippings are nutrient dense and perfect to help feed and keep a lawn lush and healthy. The old-fashioned way to reuse these clippings was to compost them into mulch. This method took a lot of effort to build a compost, wait for it to decompose and then spread it over the lawn. But new lawnmower technologies feature something called a “recycler cutting deck.” As you mow, it automatically re-cuts the clippings into smaller pieces, which are immediately spread across the lawn. Look for this feature the next time you’re investing in a new lawnmower.
