Eight things you need to know about mulch mowing.

Fertilizing your lawn just got easier. Just let your grass clippings do the job for you. Grass clipping mulch is the natural way to feed your lawn essential nutrients. Here are eight things you need to know:

1. Mulch mowing allows clippings to be cut finely enough so that they can’t be seen when redistributed into the lawn.

2. Make sure your blades are sharp. Sharp blades help ensure a precise, quality cut.

3. Mulching returns nitrogen-rich nutrients to your lawn. This feeds your lawn and can reduce the amount of fertilizer you need.

4. Follow the “one-third” rule when mulch mowing, taking no more off than the top third of the grass blade. Fast-growing conditions will warrant more frequent mowing.

5. Mulching works better when the grass is dry.

6. The MulchControl™ System from John Deere is the easy way to mulch while you mow.

7. If tall or wet grass conditions result in unsightly clumps, your MulchControl™ System should be used in side-discharge mode.

8. If conditions warrant using your MulchControl™ System in side-discharge mode, clippings are likely to be visible for a few days as they decay.
