Anything that can help make management of constructed landscapes more sustainable is worth consideration.
Smart developers will stack and save the native soil and even perhaps amend it with compost then put it back into the landscape.
Greedy developers will sell the top soil, which is often the first thing to go in residential developments.
Even if the top soil is stacked and reused, it often becomes sterile in during the development period. I either buy nursery stock inoculated with mycorrhizae or add it myself.
I also think that while the grass clipping will decompose on their own. I see less clipping build up on the lawns that I treat than on the ones that use off the shelf products.
As a side note, I like to eat yogurt and Kimchee.
