Booklet
Abstract: 

Many cities and counties have made it illegal to dispose of lawn clippings along with household waste. This folder explains how one can eliminate the need to compost or otherwise dispose of lawn clippings by allowing them to compost in place. This not only reduces the need to dispose of them in landfills, but provides valuable organic materials to the lawn. Discusses clipping production, management, thatch, mowing, mowing heights, watering, fertilization, mulching and composting. For lawn maintenance personnel, municipal waste authorities, extension educators and homeowners.
