IS MULCHING GRASS CLIPPINGS GOOD OR BAD?

IS MULCHING THE GRASS CLIPPINGS GOOD OR BAD FOR THE LAWN?

As long as no more than 33% of the grass' foliage is removed during the lawn mowing the grass clippings will not cause thatch buildup. Mulching the lawn's grass clippings is very beneficial for the lawn because this will recycle organic matter and water back into the Colorado soil. Grass foliage is comprised of 90% water and will decompose quickly becoming almost invisible within a few hours after lawn mowing. Mulching grass clippings will be beneficial for the lawn and will stimulate beneficial microbial activity in the soil.
