Where & How To Use Grass Clippings In The Garden – The Perfect Free Fertilizer & Mulch! 

The garden can benefit from grass clippings' nutrients and weed suppression. How to use them effectively  

Spread a thin layer of grass clippings around plant bases to control weeds, moisture, and soil temperature. Avoid piling clippings too tightly to prevent matting and airflow.  

Mulching  

Your compost pile will benefit from grass clippings' nitrogen content. They can be mixed with carbon-rich materials like dried leaves, straw, or shredded newspaper to make a balanced compost that breaks down swiftly.  

Composting  

Topdress garden beds with grass clippings. Spread a thin coating on the soil to add nutrients and organic matter. Vegetable gardens and perennial beds benefit from this.  

Topdressing  

Because grass clippings are nitrogen-rich, they can fertilise your plants. Instead of bagging yard clippings, leave them on the grass.   

Boost Nitrogen  

To retain moisture, control weeds, and release nutrients slowly, mulch vegetable plants like tomatoes and peppers with grass clippings.  

Vegetable Bed Mulching  

Consider mulching garden walkways using grass clippings. They prevent weeds between paths and provide a soft walking surface.
