Times You Shouldn't Leave Grass Clippings On Your Lawn
Leaving small grass clippings on your lawn is a convenient lawn-care practice that replenishes the soil with valuable nutrients, eliminating the need for seasonal fertilizers.
However, you should not leave the clippings on your lawn if the grass is infested with weeds, especially hard-to-control ones like dandelions, clover weeds, or purslane.
This is because weed clippings still carry seeds that can nestle into the soil and germinate, leading to a surge in weed growth across your yard.
Instead, you should bag these clippings and dispose of them in your yard waste trash can to prevent further proliferation of weeds in
your lawn.
