Grasscycling

GRASSCYCLING: AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3!

Grasscycling means leaving grass clippings to decompose on your lawn after you mow it, in order to nourish budding shoots. This simple, eco-friendly action will help you to not only save time but also cut down on fertilizer costs! What’s more, doing so can help cut down on waste going to landfill by almost 25% while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions.   

THREE SIMPLE STEPS:
  1. Cut your grass to a height of three inches (7.5 cm).
  2. Leave the clippings where they are after mowing. They will disappear in 48 hours.
  3. To speed up decomposition, equip your mower with a mulching blade that will shred the grass.
By keeping your grass at a height of around 3 inches (7.5 cm) when you cut it, you will enable your lawn to retain its humidity, since the clippings are up to 80% water. By leaving the clippings to decompose in your yard, you will recover around 30% of the nutritional elements needed to grow new blades of grass, while making them more resistant to dehydration and disease.
