GrassCycling is the practice of leaving grass clippings on your lawn when mowing, instead of bagging them. It’s the natural way to recycle grass clippings and provide your lawn with the valuable nutrients and water that it needs.
Does GrassCycling cause thatch?
No! In fact, grasscycling can help prevent thatch by shading and feeding soil with grass clippings.
What is thatch?
Thatch is the layer of living and dead material (roots, stems, and shoots) that develops between the zone of grass blades and the soil surface. Excess thatch can be produced by improper mowing (keeping the grass too short), excess fertilization and pesticide usage, and improper watering techniques.
