But last year was real wet and then freeze up came so there was no dry leaves they were just soggy and would not shred.
Clippings I have offered to deliver for free to a few horse owners on the outskirts of town but no takers. Since our compose program closed/failed there is only one option left and that is why I bag and leave on site.
If anyone has a good solution for disposing of grass clippings I am all ears?
I do have a couple of customers that request that we just dump them in the garden area and then they spread them around to walk on between rows and in the fall they get tilled in.....that is an ideal situation but not all customers have a garden.
The best would be to find a buyer for them...lol
check with your local bark mulch supplyier or dirt yard they will compost then mix it in with the soil then sell it to landscapers and people needing composted bark mulch or orgaint blended soil
