Grasscycle Next Time You Mow

Grasscycling, or mulch-mowing, means leaving the clippings on the lawn to feed the soil. You’ll save time – no more bagging clippings and dragging them to the curb! It also reduces waste, reduces irrigation and fertilizer needs, and makes lawns greener and healthier.

Scientific trials and turf professionals have shown that mulch mowing:

– Doesn’t cause thatch buildup

– Improves spring green-up, and lawns stay green longer in dry summer conditions

– Improves soil and lawn health and resistance to disease

– Can contribute from ¼ up to ½ of your lawn’s annual fertilizer needs, reducing fertilizer costs and water pollution.

– Reduces total mowing, bagging, and disposal time by 40%!
