Earth Wise: Grass Recycling

The easiest way to recycle your grass is to “cut it high and let it lie.” Keep grass at 2 1/2” to 3 1/2” taking off only a little at a time. In a few days, short clippings disappear between the blades and naturally fertilize the lawn. In fact… leaving clippings on you lawn all season is equivalent to one fertilizer application.
