Your Guide To Mulching
Mulching is an important method to keep your lawn healthy. Like all living
organisms, grass needs nutrition, and it can get that nutrition from the grass
clippings that are returned to your lawn.
Mulching also protects your lawn by spreading a layer of material over the soil.
This keeps and moisture and prevents soil erosion. As the clippings break down
they provide fertilizer for your lawn.
There are many mulching mowers on the market today. They feature special
mulching blades that chop the grass clippings into fine pieces before spreading
them over the lawn. Mulching reduces the amount of fertilizer you need to spread
on the lawn and also saves you the trouble of raking up the grass clippings.
With all this going for it, why doesn't everyone mulch all the time? There can
be some drawbacks with too much mulching. One of the side effects of excess
mulching is thatch - a layer of grass stems and roots that can gradually
accumulate. If the thatch becomes too thick your lawn will have to be
de-thatched - removing the thatch with a garden rake or power de-thatcher.
It's a good idea to mulch your lawn during dry spells and heat waves. Mulching
can also be done after fertilizing the lawn. You should collect the grass
clippings when you notice an accumulation of mulch or thatch.
Some mowers give you a choice of discharge options. Three in one models allow
you to bag the clippings, discharge them from the rear or side, or mulch the
clippings. These mowers are ideal for a variety of conditions and allow you to
avoid mulching when needed.
Mulching is great for your lawn but you don't want to do it all the time. Mowers
that give you an option between mulching and discharge may cost a little bit
extra, but can save you money and headaches down the road.
