“Grasscycle” for a healthier lawn: Leave short grass clippings on the lawn rather than bagging them and dragging them to the curb.

Saves Your Time, Money & Your Town’s Money! Experts say 35 percent of our lawn-care time is spent getting rid of clippings. Grasscycled lawns need less water and fertilizer, and you don’t have to buy lawn waste bags. And your town saves the disposal cost of your lawn clippings.
  • Short clippings act as natural fertilizer, shelter tender grass roots from the sun and conserve moisture. The result is a healthier, greener lawn.
  • Grasscycled lawns are more resisitan to weeds and certain lawn diseases.
  • Grassrecycling does not cause thatch. Short clippings decompose in a few days. Thatch — dead grass roots and stems — is the result of overwatering, overfertilizing and cutting your lawn too short.
