Definition of grass clippingsCategorized under "General"
Definition as written by Terry:
The lawn waste resulting from mowing. Long clippings, especially if the grass is wet, can cause immediate and long-term problems - clumps of clippings can clog the mower and restrict the blade from rotating properly; large piles of grass clippings are unslightly and can smother the underlying lawn if left in place.
Long-term, thatch can build up when the grass clippings are not small enough to break down properly in the soil.
Good mowing practices involve mowing regularly and often, so that only a small portion of the grass blade is removed each time. Using a mulching mower blade can help as well.
