Should you use your grass catcher?
There are some real benefits to not use your grass catcher.
Before starting your lawn mower, you probably attach your grass collection bag. A grass clipping-free lawn looks great, but if you leave the clippings where they lie the young and tender blades of grass are quickly absorbed into the soil and deliver nutrients to the roots.
When should you use your Grass Catcher?
If you haven’t mowed your grass for a while and your grass is very long, it is better to bag it in a catcher as you go. While those extra-long grass clippings contain a lot of nutrients, the length of the blades can smother emerging shoots and prevent them from growing.
