Green Monday...

"Most grass species are best kept at least 2 1/2 inches tall. The length creates more surface area to absorb sunlight, which creates thicker turf and deeper roots, which means you won't need to water as often. Save money by letting grass clippings remain on your lawn; it adds nitrogen to the soil and discourages weed seeds from germinating. You'll need less fertilizer and herbicide. Leaving clippings on lawns means less in landfills; in 2005 Americans disposed of more than 12 million tons of yard waste." (Better Homes and Gardens magazine)

.......my husband will be happy to hear this......

Yes. This is good news, indeed.

(I already do this, but it's good to get a little positive reinforcement from the scientific community.)
