Leave clippings on your lawn

Don’t bag them! Let your lawn clippings contribute to the health of your lawn by adding moisture and nutrients to the soil. And contrary to popular belief,¬†grass clippings¬†do not contribute to excess thatch build-up. Organic material like grass clippings will be readily broken down if your soil is alive with earthworms and other beneficial decomposers. Keep pesticides and herbicides to a minimum to keep your soil “alive.”
