Question: How often should my lawn be cut?
Answer: At times of active growth, lawns should be cut every week to a height of 2 1/2 – 3 inches. Ideally only 1/3 of the grass blade should be removed in one mowing.
Question: Should my grass clippings be collected?
Answer: Removal of clippings also means removal of nitrogen from the lawn. It is better to chop up and disperse the clippings so they may return nutrients to your lawn. The leaf blade of your grass is actually 80% water and 5% nitrogen. Mulching can reduce the amount of fertilizer you have to apply to your lawn and it helps provide the soil with increased ground cover to hold moisture. Our company uses special mowers with mulching blades that return the grass clippings to the lawn through a continuous cut and re-cut motion. This process eventually drops the finely cut clippings back into the lawn, not onto the lawn. Leaving clippings does not lead to a build up of thatch.

Our team will do a thorough job from recommending when the proper time to trim will be to a complete clean-up of debris.
Edge and Mulch
Michael Grimm Services strongly recommends installing a new edge on beds as well as installing a top-dressing (1″) of fresh mulch over all garden areas on a yearly basis.
