Grasscycling is the natural practice of leaving clippings on the lawn when mowing. The clippings quickly decompose returning nutrients to the soil. Grasscycling can reduce water and fertilizer requirements, mowing time and disposal costs. The average lawn can generate as much as eight tons of yard waste per acre each year.
