Leave your grass clippings on the lawn! Grass clippings are 80-85% water. If you mow your lawn once a week, the clippings will filter down and decompose within 7-10 days. This also reduces the amount of fertilizer you need by 25-30% by returning nutrients to soil. You can use them as mulch by placing them around the base of shrubs, up to one inch thick. The mulch will prevent water loss and eventually decompose. You can also compost them. Mix with leaves, wood chips or garden materials. Grass clippings can also be delivered to OCRRA's Amboy Compost Site or OCRRA's Jamesville Compost Site.
