Positive Environmental Impact

Grasscycling is the natural recycling of grass by leaving grass clippings on the lawn after mowing. These clippings add organic material back to the soil which acts as a natural fertilizer and keeps your lawn looking greener and healthier.

Grasscycling also reduces turf grass fertilizer and water requirements by minimizing toxic runoff entering storm drains and polluting natural waterways. Grasscycling also reduces the amount of yard waste disposed of in landfills as the amount of grass that can be generated has been shown to be as much as 6.5 tons per acre each year.

Saves Time & Money

Grasscycling saves time as less time is spent on raking and bagging grass clippings. Transporting thousands of tons of green waste costs a lot of money. Grasscycling helps to reduce tonnage and keeps collection costs down.
