1. Is bagging grass clippings bad for the environment? Yes. Studies have shown that almost 20% of solid waste deposited in landfills is that from yard debris.
2. Will returning grass clippings to the lawn create more thatch? No. Thatch is a naturally-occurring layer of both decomposed stems and roots that grows between the grass blades and the soil.
3. Will returning clippings to my lawn makes it greener? Yes. Research has shown that over a 3-year period, clippings from lawns contained between 46%-59% of nitrogen that was applied to the lawn (fertilizer).
4. Are side-discharge, mulching, and bagging mowers all the same? No. Both side-discharge and mulching mowers leave grass blades behind. However, a mulching blade chops up clippings into finer pieces so they decompose faster and don’t clump as quickly.
5. Can leaving excessive grass clippings on my lawn damage it? Yes. If you don’t mow frequently enough, excessive clumps and thick matting of lawn clippings can discolor and even kill areas in your lawn.
6. Are grass clipping safe to use on my garden for compost? No. Check with your lawn care company as to what was applied on your last lawn care service.
