|I read in your Q&A that grass clippings add nitrogen to composts. My mower is a mow/mulch that finely cuts the grass each time I mow. Is this sufficient nitrogen for my grass ?

|Your mulching mower will do an adequate job of cutting the grass clippings into small enough pieces that they will help nourish your turf. You'll probably need to add a supplemental source of nitrogen during the growing season to keep your lawn lush and green. If it begins to yellow, it needs a dose of fertilizer. If it remains thick and green all summer long, you won't need to fertilize.
