Grasscycling Mow and Go
What is Grasscycling?
The short answer - grasscycling saves time, reduces waste and leads to a deeper, healthier root system that increases your lawn’s resistance to disease, drought and insects.
Grasscycling is simple and easy—and it’s good for the environment. It simply means leaving grass clippings to fall on the lawn when it is mowed instead of collecting the clippings and placing them in kraft paper bags or open rigid walled containers for curbside collection.
