Use Yard Clippings to Keep Weeds Away

Use Yard Clippings to Keep Weeds Away - grass clipping as mulchIf you are growing pumpkins, gourds, or squash I'm sure you understand the struggle of having weeds growing up in the vines and not being able to remove them without damaging your plant. If you take your grass clippings and sprinkle them over your vines often, they will build up and help prevent weeds from growing without using pesticides.

This is interesting and great timing for its publication. I just started bagging the grass cuttings and using them in my milkweed garden and it is working perfect. Not sure why unless it is the heat from the compactness of the grass that smothers the weeds but one thing is for sure the breakdown of the grass over time will be a fertilizer as well. When the fall arrives, bag the cut leaves and start putting them in the garden for the winter and you will be rewarded come next spring with beautiful rich dirt. Just make sure you are not bagging chemically sprayed lawn grass or leaves. This will not be good for the garden plants.
