grasscycling your lawn

Grasscycling is simple, it means you leave your grass cuttings on you lawn instead of picking them up and bagging them. That's right, you save time and labor and leave the grass cuttings behind. Why grasscycling? grass cuttings are a tremendous free fertilizer and when they are mulched into smaller material they can break down quickly and give nutrients back to your existing grass. To cut the grass into finer material you will need a mulching blade attachment on your mower. The mulching blade finely cuts the grass into smal pieces. Grasscycling is a wonderful way to recycle your grass and reduce you use of plastic bags. Feeding your grass with nutrient rich grass cuttings is a great way to get a lush healthy looking lawn. Remember to cut your grass when it is not a hot part of the day as the direct sun will harm the freshly cut grass. As well, be sure to change the mowing direction you cut, each time you mow, and always leave your lawn three inches high by never cutting too short. Have a look at the City of Calgary video below to learn more about grasscycling.
