Recycle your lawn by mulch mowing

Ditch the bag! Mulching your leaves can help your lawn and save time. When done properly, mulch mowing your leaves and grass clippings can save you from bagging your yard waste and adds nutrients back into your soil.

Tips for success: 

  • Ditch the bag, mow over your leaves and leave your grass clippings on the lawn.
  • Mow your lawn frequently and with up to one inch of fallen leaves at a time.
  • By mulch mowing during the fall, you can incorporate up to six inches of leaves into your lawn without concern.
