One of the decisions you need to make when cutting your grass is what to do with the grass clippings. You can bag the clippings and dispose of them properly, or you can mulch your grass clippings instead. Here is what you need to know about each of these options.

Mulching in your yard with the materials you already have access to and others you can purchase from a landscape supplier can protect your yard from winter's harsh climate and put it into a better situation for the spring thaw. Here are some recommendations to help you keep your yard and soil healthy for winter with fall mulching practices.

Hi. My name is Martha. My husband Leo and I are empty nesters. The last of our three kids moved out of the home about eight years ago. Since that time, we have talked a great deal about retirement and what we wanted to do with our house. The house is slightly too large for just the two of us, but we already have two grandchildren and from the way our kids talk, we are in for plenty more. We have decided to stay in our home since it has plenty of room for our family to come and stay with us from time to time. The one thing we really wanted to change is the backyard. Leo retired last year, and I’ll be retiring in about six months. We are already talking with the landscape contractor, and I’m excited to share some of our plans with you!
