Grass Care Tips

by Andrew Carpenter on November 14, 2017

It’s that time of year to fertilize your yard, dust off your lawn mower, and get ready for the mowing and growing season.  As you mow, please remember to direct grass clippings back toward your lawn and away from streets, driveways and sidewalks. Growing grass benefits from all the great nutrients found in lawn clippings. Clippings left on impervious surfaces are washed down the storm drain and into the closest creek or stream. Once there, nature works to decompose the grass clippings, and while doing so, depletes the oxygen in water which fish and plants need to survive.  Keeping grass clippings off of the street and sidewalks is a simple thing we can all do to keep our city clean and beautiful. Happy Spring and happy mowing!
