When you're done with lawn mowing, it's time to rake and sack your grass clippings, right? Not so fast. Leaving the clippings is good for your lawn ̵
Instead of throwing the baggie attachment onto your lawnmower or spending time slashing the entire lawn and bagging by hand, you can – in most cases – leave the grass behind it. You not only save time, but also a lot of time for your lawn.
Grass clippings release nitrogen back into the soil, promoting greener grass growth. They give your lawn a free fertilizer gain by leaving cut grass alone. In addition, the waste shields the soil and protects the soil from moisture. In addition, they attract earthworms that help decompose the waste and build it into the soil.
You can not always leave the rake in the garage. If you mow your lawn while the grass is wet, the leftovers will clump up in wet grapes. These lumps prevent sunlight and oxygen from entering your grass. This causes brown spots, encourages mushroom growth and is terrible for your lawn overall. If you mow, if the grass is too high or too wet, you should chop the lumps.
When raking your cuttings, you should compost them instead of bagging them and throwing them on the curb. Grass composts well and in this way you can recuperate the nutrients in the grass for later use in the rest of your landscaping.
