Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:070 Tip: When cutting your lawn, never clip more than 1/3 the length of the grass at one time. If you let it get too long, clip it at no more than the 1/3 length, let the cut dry a short while then clip it again. Clipping no more than 1/3 will help promote a lush thick lawn that helps eliminate chemicals for weed control.

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:069 Tip: Mulch Mowing chops grass finely and allows it to mix with the living grass where the clippings will decay and provide soil nutrients. This also reduces the amount of waste material going into the landfill.
