Should i Bag my clippings or Mulch them?
This is a question we get alot from our lawn care customers in acworth, ga. When mowing your lawn we always recommend to mulch the clippings back into the lawn to get the best results from our lawn care program. Letting the clippings go back down is a great way to keep the lawn healthy and green because the clippings will recycle many important nutrients back into the lawn. In addition to being good for the lawn, this can also be a real time saver because it cuts out the work involved in mowing the lawn. Imagine the time you will save if you don’t have to worry about dumping the bag and moving the clippings somewhere?

Infrequent mowings where you alot of the grass blade off at one time would be a different story. We always recommend to mow your actively growing lawn atleast on a weekly
