Should grass clippings be left on the lawn?

Nutrient-rich mulch

Recycled grass clippings combined with a lawn fertilizer can be used to feed your grass and make it look better and healthier.

You can leave your lawn clippings on the ground for some time to come. If you don't mind how it looks at first, grass clippings will break down over time and add nutrients to the soil beneath the grass.

Grass clippings left on your lawn after mowing should be as small as possible, avoid leaving long grass on the lawn. Frequent lawn mowing will ensure that your clippings are short. The smaller pieces of grass will break down faster and can easily deteriorate. They provide a natural and low-cost source of nutrients rich in nitrogen and will help your lawn's health and appearance.
