Lawn mowings make good mulch

Posted Jun 06 2009 10:05pm

The lawns have grown since the last rains, and the lawn clippings make a useful mulch.

* Grass clippings form a mat if spread thickly, which is no problem round trees, as it helps to conserve the moisture.
* Grass makes a good vegetable mulch and it is rich in nitrogen. But spread thinly for vegetables.
* It is probably safer to put all the clippings on the compost heap, and use them next year when they have rotted down.

Remember NOT to use lawn mowings for a mulch if the grass has been treated with a herbicide.
