Grass clippings won't be as effective as incorporating lots of compost or peat moss. Spread 3-4 inches over the top of the soil and dig it into the soil to a depth of 8-10 inches (this is where the roots of your plants will be). The compost will help hold moisture and nutrients and will really benefit your plants.
