Yes as long as the grass clippings do not contain grass that has gone to seed. If it does, well you'll have a lot more grass.

Also avoid using grass that has been treated with chemical weed killers. It might stunt your flowers.

I use my grass clippings to mulch my containers for my flowers or my veggie plants. It keeps the soil moist and breaks down to fertilize the soil.
