Leave the Turf Clippings Behind for a Healthier Yard
This can produce a large amount of yard clippings. An alternative option is to go natural and leave the yard clipping in place on the yard; this helps promote a healthy yard and saves on labor.
Cut grass quickly breaks-down after a routine mowing session and motivates the production of valuable micro-organisms and earthworms that keep the healthy state of the turf and soil. Lawn clippings include nutrients which are recycled into the lawn, and fertilize the soil for stable development. On-going cultivation (aeration) of the yard is the very best technique to prevent the onset on thatch (a spongy, brown kind of material which includes dead grass-roots and stems).
Trimming the Lawn
Grass height can depend on the particular turf seed. Try to avoid letting the turf grow overly long since this can increases the opportunity of the clippings smothering the lawn.
When cutting with a walk-behind mower, it is necessary to have a routine mowing schedule in place to make sure the yard is kept brief and that no more than 1/3 of the yard is cut on each cutting session. It takes considerably less-time to trim often and leave the little clippings on the yard than to trim the long yard every 3 or four weeks and rake and bag the clippings.
