Mulch mowing is a lawn maintenance practice that has gained popularity in recent years, and for good reason. While many customers assume that all grass clippings should be bagged and removed from the property, research has shown that mulching your clippings can actually be beneficial for your lawn. In fact, much of the turf equipment available today is designed to easily perform this task.
One of the primary benefits of mulch mowing is water conservation. When grass clippings are mulched and left on the lawn, they form a protective barrier that helps to retain moisture in the soil. This can be especially beneficial during hot, dry weather when lawns are prone to drying out. In addition, the mulched clippings can provide nutrients to the soil, reducing the amount of fertilizer needed to keep your turf healthy.
Contrary to popular belief, leaving grass clippings on your lawn does not cause thatch buildup. Studies have shown that thatch is actually the result of the lower stem and root system, not the grass leaves. By leaving the finely chopped grass clippings on your lawn, you can reduce the amount of fertilizer nutrients needed to keep your turf healthy, which can also help to reduce thatch buildup over time.
Another benefit of mulch mowing is that it can save you time and money. Bagging and disposing of grass clippings can be a time-consuming and costly task. By mulch mowing your lawn, you can save time and money on lawn care services or equipment rentals.
