Create a healthier lawn

Mulching mowers create healthier looking lawn

When grass clippings decompose, they return nutrients to the soil.  The decomposed clippings form humus which helps loosen hard soils making more oxygen and nutrients available to grass roots.  Humus also enriches sandy soil by helping it retain moisture more effectively.

The smaller clippings produced by mulching mowers decompose readily into your lawn.

Mulching feeds soil micro-organisms

A healthy, productive lawn is alive with micro-organisms, earth worms and insects.  Feeding these creatures regularly with organic matter can actually improve the quality of the soil and your lawn!

The additional level of micro-organisms at work on mulched clippings has been shown to suppress certain grass diseases and reduce mould spore counts.

Finely chopped grass clippings from a mulching lawnmower provide a feast for these tiny organisms.

These organisms help break down the clippings releasing valuable nutrients and returning them to the soil as well as helping aerate the soil.

This is the natural way to create the best looking lawn ever!

Mulching reduces “thatch”

And here’s a surprise - mulching actually reduces thatch and contrary to popular belief it does not cause thatch build-up.  The micro-organisms that thrive on decomposing mulched clippings also do a good job breaking down thatch.

Great looking lawns

Perhaps the most important criteria of all is how great your lawn looks after mulching.

By improving the texture and content of the soil and reducing diseases and thatch, the end result of lawn mulching is a fuller, healthier looking lawn.
