Grasscycling - What to do with all your Grass Clippings?

Printer-friendly version

GrassCycling is the natural recycling of grass by leaving grass clippings on the lawn when mowing. Once on the ground the grass clippings, which contain 80-85% water, decompose quickly returning valuable nutrients like nitrogen back into the soil. There is more to GrassCycling than just leaving the clippings on the lawn and can involve thatching, aerating, cutting, watering and fertilising. Leaving cuttings on your lawn all season long provides the same level of nutrients as one application of fertiliser a year.

What are the Benefits of Grasscycling?

Save money: GrassCycling replaces up to a third of your fertiliser needs. It also saves space in your bins, reducing disposal costs.

Help the Environment: This simple change in lawn management can significantly reduce the amount of materials going to landfill, conserving energy and reducing greenhouse gases.
