4) Stop Bagging Your Clippings
Generally bagging your clippings is more of a preference thing but leaving your cuttings on your lawn is also benefitial since that too is organic material which breaks down and improves soil health. During the summer I would bag every other cut for the most part or when in times I let it grow too high. But for the fall, I take the bag off the mulching mower and let the cuttings be on the lawn. This falls in line with my #3 tip of mulching the leaves, so just mulch it all to give that last layer of protection and nutrients going into winter.
Hi, Alex Kuritz. here. Growing up I remember that my family had one of the best lawns in the neighborhood. Richly green and lush. I did a lot as I grew up in terms of caring and tending for not only my family’s lawn but also my neighbors. I can say I have years of experience, and I am here to share it with you.
