We recently mulched our flower beds. Then my husband cut the grass and now our nice mulch job is covered in grass clippings. How do we successfully remove those so the mulch looks like new again??? We are new homeowners and are learning as we go.

As the grass clippings dry out they will turn a light brown. They may blow away on their own but if not you can simply rake the mulch lightly to encourage the clippings to fall down underneath the mulch. Or, if you have a leaf blower, wait until the clippings dry out and then try blowing them out of the mulch. Best wishes with your new landscape!
