Default Is it a good idea to leave grass clippings?

As you can see, the wild grass has been growing pretty good over the last couple months, I'm gonna run the mower and cut them down a little bit. If I leave the clippings where they are, they'll become mulch, right?

But you can't walk barefoot in the garden, or you'll have green feet.
Thnx to Marcel, Ante, Dr. Chiranjit Parmar and Francesco for the plants I've received.

You could always put it around your bananas for mulch.

Default Re: Is it a good idea to leave grass clippings?

Grass clippings are great. We get so overloaded with them every year. We've used them a lot. Newspaper layed down between vegetable rows with grass clippings to weight them down for weed control, rototill them in to amend soil. Last year we used them for weed control around the nanas and will rototill it in the spring before they go back outside. It wasn't very pretty though so I don't know if we'll do it this year for the front yard.
