Leave Grass Clippings on Your Lawn

With all of the heavy rain we are experiencing this summer, most of us have had to mow our lawns much more frequent. These heavy rains have contributed to additional grass clippings that are ending up in the City storm water system. Grass clippings that are blown into the street eventually enter the street storm drains and inlets.

When mowing your lawn, make certain that you do not blow grass clippings into the street. When mowing, make the first few passes with the lawnmower blowing the grass clippings into the lawn not directly into the street. If there are grass clippings on the street or sidewalk, use a broom or leaf blower to blow them back into the lawn. Do not use a hose to wash them into the street or storm drains. Keeping your leaves and lawn clippings out of the streets and gutters will have significant benefits for our local rivers, lakes, streams or creeks. You can do your part to reduce the amount of phosphorus entering our local rivers, lakes, streams or creeks by following these water quality tips and encouraging your neighbors to do the same.

Keep your grass clippings on the lawn and not in the street or gutter. Remember, when you leave your grass clippings on the lawn, you add free fertilizer to your lawn. According to the U.S. EPA, leaving your grass clippings on the lawn doesn’t cause thatch buildup. Grass clippings are about 90 percent water, so they decompose very quickly. Leaving your grass clippings on the lawn can reduce your lawn’s annual fertilizer needs, reduce your fertilizer costs and reduce water pollution.
