Grasscycling is a simple way to recycle your grass clippings. Simply leave clippings on your lawn!
- Keep your mower height at 2.5 inches. Never let the grass grow more than three inches tall.
- Leave the grass clippings where they fall and allow them to compost.
- For a healthy lawn, only cut one-third of the grass blade at a time.
- Cut your lawn frequently, about once or twice per week.
