The Q&A Archives: Grass Clippings?

Question: I recently prepared a bed for spring annuals. I added some fresh grass clippings to the soil thinking this would become good compost and help keep the clay soil from sticking back together. Most (if not all) the plant leaves have turned yellow (not green) and are dying. Could it be that the grass clippings are stealing nutrients in their decomp process or something else going on here?
