Recycle Your Lawn this Fall

Recycle your lawn this fall with Johnson County Health and Environment. Not only do grass clippings and leaves help retain moisture, they also return much needed nutrients back into the soil. Research recommends that you mulch your leaves and grrass clippings using a mulching mower. By "grass-cycling" properly your lawn will look great and you can save money on fertilizing. For more information on how you can recycle your lawn by mulch mowing or composting check out our Yard Waste & Composting Page.
