Should you grasscycle? Probably. Just leave your grass clippings on the lawn after mowing and let the clippings do the rest.
With no clippings to bag or trash, you can reduce your time and yard waste. (Psst, In 2017 landfills received 8.7 million tons of yard trimmings). Clippings add nutrients and organic matter back to your soil as they break down. Clippings can help add moisture to the soil too.
If grasscycling isn’t an option, you can compost clippings or use them as garden mulch.
watch out: Clippings that are too big to break down quickly may block air and sunlight from your lawn.
watch out: Wet grass clippings can stick together instead of spreading evenly over the lawn.
watch out: Skip grasscycling if you have a lot of weeds that have gone to seed, like dandelions, to keep them from spreading.
