Mowing is one of the most important cultural practices performed in lawn maintenance regardless of whether the lawn is fertilized, irrigated, or receives applications of control products. Proper mowing practices are essential if a high-quality lawn is to be developed. A mowed lawn within standards will have fewer weed populations, better moisture, stress tolerance, and ultimately, a better lawn...
Besides, a properly mowed lawn will have a tremendous effect on the appearance of the property. The mowing height is an important factor to consider. For best appearance, the turf should be maintained at a consistent height.
Grasscycling is the natural way to recycling grass-clippings by leaving them on the lawn when mowing. It is a simple and effective way to help conserve landfill capacity while benefiting from getting a greener and healther lawn
Grasscycling does not spread lawn diseases, and does not cause thatch build-up in the lawn
The USDA Research Center in Beltville Maryland:
A previous study at the USDA research station in Beltville Maryland, showed that thatch is composed primarily of grass roots, not clippings. Clippings left on the lawn decay quickly and release valuable nutrients back to the lawn. It has been proven that it is an effective method for turf management... It also provides an important opportunity for everyone to participate in curbside waste management while saving $ by reducing lawn mowing labor cost...
However, for all those who must have their clippings taking away from site due to using the area for kids-play, or are allergic to it, there is no need to feel guilt. Local laws requires us (the mowers) to take all clippins to the yard waste recycling center where all clippings are procesed and converted into organic matters (fertilizers, and other environmentally friendly energy sources)
