What is the best way to mow the lawn?

Leave the clippings

Leaving your grass clippings on the lawn is actually a good thing. As the grass clippings decompose they add valuable nitrogen to the soil - almost 2 pounds per 1000 square feet each season. As well they add organic matter and other benefits to the soil that will actually make your lawn healthier. Make sure you mow frequently, and remove no more than 1/3rd of the leaf blade with each mowing. LUCKIE
