Collecting your grass clippings serves many purposes for both the appearance and the health of your lawn. To quickly pick-up debris and keep a uniform appearance during the thick of growing season, bagging is definitely the solution. If you’re rehabbing your yard, you’ll want to bag the clippings so as not to disperse weed seeds or any diseased clippings. At the end of the season, using a bagger can really help make fall leaf cleanup a breeze. Additionally, if you compost, bagging your grass clippings offers easy access to a great source of compostable material.
Much like bagging, mulching your grass clippings can serve to improve your lawn’s appearance. Mulching returns nutrients directly back into the ground, resulting in less watering (and a lower water bill!) and fertiliser use. Additionally, you’ll save time by eliminating the need to stop mowing to empty bags.
