Mow High & Mulch Clippings
Some of the best fertilizer is right under your mower. Full of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, grass clippings feed new plant growth and help hold moisture in the soil. But those same nutrients pose a problem when they wash down storm sewers into our lakes and rivers, causing algae growth that ruins the water for fish, other wildlife, and recreation. By keeping grass clippings off your driveway, sidewalk and street, you score an environmental win-win — better lawn, better water.
