Grass Clippings:

If you’re bagging your grass clippings, you’re not doing your back or the environment any favors! If you use a lawn mower with a mulching blade, leave the grass clippings lay on the ground for a greener, healthier yard.  Rather than bagging all of those grass clippings, leave the clippings lay on your lawn. It is best to mow frequently so the large amounts of leaf and grass residue do not remain on the surface of the turf.  Grass clippings are a natural fertilizer for our grass as they contain a large number of the nutrients our lawn needs to it keep looking healthy.  Don’t waste your money on expensive lawn fertilizers.  Reduce your yard work and yard waste all while saving water (grass clippings are 85% water).  In the end, you’ll have greener grass and a wallet with more green in it!
