Grasscycling, Part II

Back at the beginning of May, I made a Simple Suggestion (#120) about grasscycling. Well, now my wonderful city has come up with a great contest to encourage more people to grasscycle... meaning, let your clippings lie instead of bagging them and wasting all the resources it takes to dispose of them. Really, it's the healthiest thing you can do for your lawn, because the nitrogen in the clippings returns to the grass' roots, and as mulch, it prevents the lawn from getting dehydrated in drier weather.

If you're interested in committing to grasscycling in Edmonton and winning a free mulching mower, here's a link to the contest: https://survey.vovici.com/se.ashx?s=78AA005C3CCE2B65.

And even if you don't live in Edmonton, please give some serious consideration to the idea of letting nature take care of your grass clippings instead of forcing your local waste management folks to deal with them. It's another indirect way to help save the planet.

And here's a great little video starring my friend Gary (he's a great guy!), who explains everything you need to know about grasscycling. If there's still something you don't understand, don't hesitate to contact me, your grasscycling-Master-Composter/Recycler-moodler!
