Go Bagless

Why Do You Go Bagless?

I Do It Because It's Easy

  • Reduces the need to water your lawn by putting moisture in the ground. Grass cut to a height of 6-8 cm (2.5-3 inches) will slow water evaporation from your soil
  • Reduces the need to fertilize your lawn. The grass clippings quickly decompose, naturally fertilizing your lawn with nutrients after each mow
  • By Going Bagless for one summer, you can save up to a full day of your time
  • Going Bagless gives you a lush, healthy lawn which helps prevent disease, thatch and weed growth. Learn more
