How to Go Bagless
Mow high: Raise the height of your mower and only cut off 1/3 of the length of the grass blades. Mow the grass to the height of your pinky, or 6-8 cm. The smaller the grass clippings, the quicker they can decompose.
Mow often: During peak grass growing season, mow about every 4-5 days. When growth is slower, cutting once a week or less is enough!
Mow when grass is dry: Cutting wet grass can cause clumping, so it’s best to let the grass dry after the rain or mow over the clumps again. If your grass is too long, start by mowing higher and then mow it again at a lower setting. This gives your lawn an even trim and keeps the clippings small.
Mow, mulch or leave leaves: Small amounts of leaves can be mowed right into your lawn. For large amounts of leaves, use them as mulch to protect shrubs and garden beds.
