For any of you who bag when you mow what how do you handle the clippings?
Currently I just blow them out into one of my fields at home.
Though, in the past I would take them to the local leaf and limb dump about every two weeks. Before that, in a different market with no leaf and limb, we would put them on a trailer and haul to the regular landfill as needed.
One thing I don't miss is the smell of rotting grass that had been bagged wet and sat in black bags. Smells like a dead animal.
Feed them to my inlaws beef cattle. Leaves are bedding come fall.
when I do bag I just empty the grass catcher directly into my pick up bed. when full I have a compost site where I live that I empty the truck at.
Might want to consider that lawns treated with some herbicides the clippings are not supposed to be fed to animals.
There's a certain time frame and how many times I have to mow before I can feed them after spraying or fertilizing. I'm down to just bagging in spring for thatching and fall clean up.
