Lawn clipping should be left on the grass after mowing

Posted by   + Show Post

Nitrogen,phosphorus, and potassium in lawn clipping feed the new grass, so less fertilizer is needed. Rather than dumping old clippings in the trash, leaving lawn clippings on the grass cuts down the amount of waste added to landfills

Eh, I'm sure that it cuts down on waste in a landfill by not adding more stuff to it? Especially since its not necessary to remove clippings.

Quoting mamivon2:

Dont ask me.. I just copied that from a book


Quoting Livinwith3boys:


Depends, if there is too much clipping..then it will kill the grass underneath...depends on how long it's been since the lawn has been cut...Also, why would lawn clippings cut down on waste added to a landfill??

Isnt grass compostable material? I wouldnt worry about the landfills. However, I agree with you, leaving it nourishes the new grass.
