After your lawn is mowed, you’re going to have to find something to do with all of those grass clippings. While many people may grab a brown lawn bag from the department store and load it up for the curb, you could actually use your lawn clippings to improve your landscaping.
As long as your clippings are cut finely, they can actually be used as mulch to re-feed your lawn with nutrients, and more. Here’s a closer look at the benefits of mulching beyond wood chips and how Executive Lawn Care can help.
Mulching Makes Your Lawn Its Healthiest
Grass clippings provide essential nutrients at a natural level that most other mulches have as chemical additives. Put your faith in your lawn clippings and give your grass what it needs with natural:
With all of these nutrients constantly seeping into your lawn, you’ll have a lawn that thrives and survives through even the harshest winter.
Mulching Retains Moisture in Your Soil
Especially after a harsh summer, your soil can easily dry up and become useless for your lawn. However, mulching your lawn with natural grass mulch provides several benefits to your soil. Not only does it cool down the temperature of your soil, but it also helps it retain moisture, allowing your lawn to truly soak up the water it needs on a regular basis.
Mulch also becomes humus. No, not the tasty dip. Humus is an essential component of soil that helps promote the growth of even more healthier soil. So, not only do your clippings start out providing nutrients and retaining moisture, but they also become healthy soil for further lawn growth.
Overall Waste Reduction
This one is a no-brainer. Mulching your lawn clippings is recycling at its bare bones. If you dump your clippings into a paper bag and leave them for the trash collectors, you’re contributing to waste within your community. Save the energy it requires to break down your clippings and paper bags by naturally carrying out the recycling process.
Mulching Saves You Money
Your time and money matters, and mulching your grass clippings definitely helps you save on both fronts. Fertilizers and mulches that you pick up at a convenience or home improvement store can get pretty pricey. Save the money you’d spend there for further improvements to your lawn that can’t be accomplished by natural means.
