My lawn is healthy and I bag my clippings. Why shouldn’t I continue bagging?
If you mulch with your grass clippings, or compost them and use the compost, that’s fine. But you’ll spend more time bagging and hauling the grass to your compost bin than you will leaving clippings on your lawn. Putting grass in your garbage costs money on your trash bill and burdens our community’s garbage disposal system. Leaving clippings on the lawn avoids these problems.
