Cut grass

Mowing the lawn is a routine task for families with outdoor spaces, such as gardens or courtyards, to maintain a well-kept and inviting environment. Here, we explore the intelligent reuse of cut grass to enhance your gardening experience.

The Mowing Process:

  1. Mowing and Collection: Utilize a lawnmower equipped with a grass collection feature to efficiently gather the cut grass in a designated area.
  2. Drying and Decomposition: Allow the cut grass to air dry and decompose over time, preparing it for various beneficial applications.

Smart Reuse Methods: Note: Ensure no pesticides or chemicals have been applied to the lawn for these methods.

  1. Mulching:
    • Use cut grass as mulch to retain soil moisture and inhibit weed growth.
    • Avoid placing grass too close to plant stems and maintain an appropriate layer thickness to prevent overheating.
    • Ensure the grass used as mulch does not enter seed areas to prevent complications.
  2. Liquid Fertilizer:
    • Prepare a nitrogen-enriched liquid fertilizer using cut grass.
    • Place cut grass in a container, add water, and let it rest for 2-3 days.
    • Filter the resulting solution and use it to water flower beds, providing efficient nourishment to your plants.
