Everyone loves a lush green lawn, but hates frequent mowing and those huge piles of grass clippings. Even though mulching is the proper long term way to mow a lawn, there are plenty of times when the pure volume of grass clippings calls for hauling them away, either by yourself or the landscaper. The effort of disposing of grass clippings takes time and more importantly, money. What about the crazy, fast growing grass in the spring? Would you like more time between cuts? I see lots of hands going up as you and others read this article this very moment.
There are products that are specifically designed to address not only these concerns but offer even more benefits with such a seemingly mystical, wonderful treatment. With your full attention, let’s explore exactly what I’m talking about as it relates to less grass clippings and less mowing.
The specific lawn treatment I reference can only be done when the turf is growing and in a healthy state, spring and fall to keep things simple; not the summer. A single spray to an average lawn, consisting of the typical grasses found in NH and VT can reduce grass growth up to 50% for nearly 4 weeks; wow! This spray causes the roots to grow, creating a more fibrous system while dramatically reducing top growth in the leaf blades. The end result is more growth and roots in the soil, and less up top which dramatically reduces grass clippings. Your lawn’s energy is now focused much like in the fall, creating lots of roots for winter and storing up energy. The bonus of this process occurring in the spring means your grass is strengthened, like an athlete, for the stress of summer heat and drought. Whether you enjoy your lawn for regular family gatherings, soccer practice, or special 4th of July barbeques; recovery will be faster and your grass will withstand the wear to a much higher degree then if not treated.
