Grass recycling is the process of leaving grass clippings on your lawn, instead of removing them while mowing. Leaving clippings on the lawn will allow soil microorganisms to break them down naturally, which releases nutrients back into the soil. These nutrients can then be used by the turf plant as an additional food source.

Clumps are ugly, and when left on the surface of the turf grass damages the plant underneath. The key to avoiding clumps is the size of the clippings: the smaller the clippings, the better. Smaller clippings fall more rapidly to the soil surface and are less likely to clump. Once you have mowed your lawn, if large clumps are visible, simply mow the area again to reduce the clippings size.
