This section will provide some useful lawn maintenance tips:
Grass clippings contain 10% nitrogen that is the main ingredient of fertilizers. Thus you can consider mulching those grass clippings to decompose and provide the necessary nitrogen for a better grass growth. Mulched grass clippings also provide shade to the soil and prevent weeds and seeds from germinating.
Ideally, the mulch layer should be approximately one to three inches deep. However, for ornamental plants, a one inch layer is sufficient enough. As the mulch starts decomposing add more to maintain this optimum depth.
Do not mulch right up to the base of trees and shrubs, as it could cause decay and injury.
A healthy mulch mixture can consist of shredded hardwood bark or cypress, pine needles, and pine bark nuggets.
