Grass cutting in the U.K. using a mulching lawnmower has become much more popular over recent summers. Several factors contribute to this, most notably the environmental benefits from returning grass cuttings back into your lawn, reducing the need to dispose of them via a black bag to your local refuse dump. Mulching mowers are also very easy to use as there is no need to stop and empty a grass-box; markedly speeding up the time it takes to mow your lawn. A simple process of holding the grass clippings under the mowing deck until they are finely chopped and then forced back into the turf is what makes mulching machines so effective for the homeowner. Be sure to understand how to get the best from your new purchase however, as effective mulching requires a slightly different approach to regular grass cutting techniques.
