Why don't you always take the grass cuttings and prunings away?
Last Updated 6 months ago
Sometimes we do take grass cuttings and other “green arisings” to suitable recycling waste facilities or to our own decomposer areas. It depends on feasibility, whether there are nearby facilities or whether we have on-site composting/ecological decomposer areas that enhance biodiversity. Some grass is mown with a mulch mower but when arisings of larger bulk must be dealt with, if possible we prefer to make discrete compost or habitat piles in out-of-the-way corners. It is surprising how many species rely on decomposer food chains: they are a vital part of nutrient cycling and energy flow through ecosystems.
