Will dead grass work for mulch for asparagus plants, i already put all the leaves i had saved in my compost pile. Should i try to find some straw or something else.

Grass clipping will serve as a mulch material and as long as you have not used weed and feed or other herbicides on your lawn you can safely use them as a mulch on your asparagus bed. If you have used chemicals on your lawn it would be safer to use clean straw as a mulch over the asparagus.
