Grasscycling & Leaf Mulching & Compost Bins
Don't Trash Grass, Recycle It!
Grasscycling is recycling grass clippings by leaving them on your lawn instead of raking them up for disposal. As grass clippings decompose, they act as a natural organic fertilizer. By doing this, you are returning valuable nutrients and moisture to the soil.
How Do I Grasscycle?
*Leave grass clippings on your lawn after mowing. Clippings break down in 7-14 days, act as top dressing fertilizer and keep your lawn green and healthy.
*Mow often, cutting only 1/3 of grass growth, and use a sharp blade when conditions are dry.
*Water your lawn in the morning, but less frequently and for longer periods of time.
What Are The Benefits of Grasscycling?
* Lawn care time is cut in half and you save money.
* Increased lawn resistance to disease, drought and insects.
* Clippings release valuable nutrients that eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers.
* Grass clippings are about 90% water, so they return ground moisture, reducing waste.
Yard debris can also be composted at home, together with kitchen scraps, to create a nutrient-rich soil additive for use in gardens, lawns or even with houseplants.
