Don’t rake, mow!

Mowing with a mulching mower and leaving the clippings behind now is one of the best things you can do for your yard. You can eliminate a lawn fertilization program by leaving clippings on the lawn all year (no, they do not cause thatch). And, you can fertilize the trees and shrubs that are part of the landscape by putting the nutrients from the leaves that fall right back into the soil. If you mow them instead of raking them, you keep most of what the trees need in the soil, as nature intended. The small chips of leaf will decompose into the lawn over the winter. You’ll have saved yourself time and made your lawn richer.
