Answer: Immediately recycling grass clippings, or 'grasscycling' as it is sometimes called, is a great idea! Grass clippings contain some nitrogen and moisture, both good for lawns. If you mow regularly, the mulching blade will do a good job of cutting the clippings into small pieces suitable for immediate broadcast back onto the lawn. This will not harm your lawn in any way, or cause the build-up of thatch. If, however, the grass is allowed to grow too tall for efficient grasscycling, bag it and compost it or lay the clippings out in piles to begin the decomposition process. In my yard I bag if I've missed a regular mowing and have tall grass. Otherwise I just leave the clippings on the lawn.
