Once on the ground the grass clippings, which contain 80-85% water, decompose quickly returning valuable nutrients like nitrogen back into the soil. There is more to GrassCycling than just leaving the clippings on the lawn and can involve thatching, aerating, cutting, watering and fertilising. Leaving cuttings on your lawn all season long provides the same level of nutrients as one application of fertiliser a year.
What are the Benefits of Grasscycling?
Save money: GrassCycling replaces up to a third of your fertiliser needs. It also saves space in your bins, reducing disposal costs.
Save Time: Even though you might mow more often, you spend less time raking, sweeping, bagging, and hauling cuttings, saving you time to enjoy the Summer.
Enjoy a healthier lawn: The valuable nutrients released through GrassCycling make lawns greener, encourage healthier grass, and enhance soil microbial activity making it softer and more drought resistant (as if we have this problem in Ireland!).
Help the Environment: This simple change in lawn management can significantly reduce the amount of materials going to landfill, conserving energy and reducing greenhouse gases..
