Use a mulching lawn mower and leave clippings on the lawn. Grass clippings return valuable nutrients like nitrogen to the lawn which keeps grass green. This also keeps organic waste out of the landfill and saves you valuable time. Sweep up any clippings that fall on the driveway or street, so they don’t end up in the storm drain.
Rake up grass clippings and compost them. If you’ve recently used an herbicide it’s best to leave them on the lawn.
Leaves on the lawn? Mow over them with a mulching mower and allow them to breakdown providing organic matter to your soil. Or compost them and add finished compost to flowerbeds.
Use a local composting service to pick up your organic landscape waste.
