Grasscycling … an ecologically and financially sound program for your lawn.

Facts About Grass Clippings

  • Many states prohibit disposal of yard wastes, including grass clippings, in landfills.
  • Using grass clippings as a nutrient source for your lawn can save time and money and protect the environment.
  • Grass clippings do not cause thatch.

The Grasscycling Concept

Leave grass clippings on the lawn! Grass clippings are 75 to 85 percent water and a good source of nutrients. When left on the lawn after mowing, they quickly decompose and release nutrients. Through grasscycling, you can supply up to 25 percent of the lawn’s yearly fertilizer needs, which means saving money and time. (And it means you do not have to rake and bag for hours.)

By following the management guidelines in this turf calendar and adding grasscycling to your routine, you will no longer need to bag clippings, and your lawn will grow at an acceptable rate, retain a green color, and develop a deeper root system.
