The Q&A Archives: Mulch or Bag

Question: Just a quick question. What is better for your lawn-mulching the grass and leaving it on your lawn or having it bagged through the bagging system?

Answer: Current practices recommend using a mulching blade and leaving the clippings, then reducing your fertilization to reflect that. Also be sure to mow often enough that you never remove more than one third the grass height per mowing so the quanitity of clippings is not too much at a time. If you prefer to bag them, consider keeping them to add to the compost pile (herbicide free clippings are great for this.)
