Mowing a New Lawn »
Newly planted grass is very delicate and easily damaged versus established grass in a mature lawn.


Should I remove grass clippings when I mow?

Frequent mowing keeps the clippings small enough so that they do not need to be removed during the mowing process. Actually, allowing the clippings to remain on the lawn helps recycle nutrients back to the living grass plants. If the grass becomes quite long between mowings (possibly due to a prolonged wet spell), it is best to remove the clippings until a regular mowing practice can be resumed. Large clumps of grass clippings sitting on the lawn surface can kill the living grass underneath. If the clippings cannot be spread out and allowed to dry, they should be removed.
