 DO IT YOURSELF; GRASSCYCLING AND COMPOST


Grasscycle (A good explanation from City of Minneapolis)

It is best to mow your grass and leaves and leave them on your lawn to decompose. The grass clippings naturally fertilize your lawn when the nutrients are returned to soil, which reduces need for fertilizer or bagging of clippings.

Compost (Click here for more information)

Convert yard waste to  a nutrient-rich soil amendment for your garden and lawn. This  is a no-cost alternative for yard waste and food waste that you can make right in your yard. For more information, visit www.pca.state.mn.us/living-green/compost
