A gardening best practice is to mulch grass as you mow and let clippings decompose on the lawn. But for those times when turf has grown too long, use bag clippings as mulch. Apply in a thin layer because clippings tend to mat. Grass decomposes quickly (in a few weeks) and makes a perfect top mulch for vegetable gardens or beneath shrubs. Never mulch with grass clippings that have been treated with herbicides or pesticides.
