Lawn Mowing and Trimming

Lawn mowing is what we do! At Gallatin Lawn we provide routine grass cuttings. Every time we show up your lawn gets mowed, we trim around all edges/ trees, and we clean up after ourselves by blowing off all walkways when finished. We even run an edger as needed along all sidewalks giving your lawn's edges a professional clean look (some restrictions may apply).

At Gallatin Lawn we let the grass clippings "fly"

 

Many lawn care professionals prefer to bag grass clippings during mowing for a crisp, clean look. However, there are several benefits to mulching grass clippings instead of bagging them.

 

A Healthy Lawn

Mulching grass clippings provides more nutrients for your soil. As they break down, the clippings will release nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. These are essential nutrients that your lawn needs to stay healthy. To avoid a thick "thatch" of grass clippings on the lawn, be sure you have a reasonable grass-mowing height. Don't wait too long before mowing a lawn; mow frequently and consistently so clippings do not turn into thatch.

 

Reduce Waste

At the outset, mulching grass clippings into the lawn may feel like you are creating more waste. After all, bagged clippings get whisked away, while mulched clippings remain in the yard. However, be assured that you are not creating more waste - the clippings are organic matter that will decompose quickly. On the other hand, the plastic bags used to toss clippings do not decompose quickly. In fact, these plastic garbage bags fill up landfills.

There is great value in mulching grass clippings instead of bagging them. Decomposing grass clippings provide the lawn with free, natural nutrients. And, eliminating the use of bags for lawn clippings helps your lawn care business to go green.
