In the March 2008 issue of Lawn & landscape magazine, a 6 page article is dedicated to the debate of what's the best way to deal with lawn clippings; which is better Muching,Bagging,Double cutting. Most companies are Double cutting yards, and are finding it too hard to mulch the clippings, and spend more time Blowing off beds, sidewalks, driveways etc. The Lawn & Landscape compaines involved in the article, are from Wisconsin, and New Jersey, which have strict enviormental laws when it comes to yard clipping disposal. With that said, the two compaines avoided accounts that required bagging passing them onto the "competetion". Both compaines agreed that to get the "manicured look of bagging required a "double cut regardless of the mower". Both companies would offer the option of bagging if the states enviornmental law, and cost to dispose of clippings was not so strick, or high priced. Both companies said "double cutting or mulching" saved 20 to 40 minutes per account vs high cost of bagging. Without directly refering to the Walker & Exmark Navigator(featured in article pictures) mowers, both comapines agreed that "their" mowers were not eqquipped(bulky outside blowers & collection "cans") to bag effiecently, and required fequent stops to dump clippings, another issue for "dedicated Midmount Mulcher ZTRS) VS the Walker or Exmark Navigator. IMO I did mulch for two seasons with SCAG 48" velocity decks, with Gator blades, residential & commercial, I also had to double cut accounts, and spend more time blowing off the property to get the manicured bagged look we all desire. I live in the Memphis, the Local recycle cent welcomes our grass clippings/leafs for their compaste & soil condition products, the recycle center does charge me a nominal $20.00 per 15yards of unbagged clipping. I can now say that with a Walker or Exmark Navigator depanding on your State lawns regarding grass clipping disposal, if you can dispose of grass clippings "cheaply" it is the efficent option to: as Lawn & landscape said "double cutting", "re-mulching clumps", and additonal time spend with Backback Blowers) is what we offer, unless the client is willing to pay the higher price for grass collection. We all need to respect our choice to either collect & dispose of grass clippings, or "Double cutting". Many compaines are now relooking the "lost" revenue of the high end accounts that demand bagging. So don't knock grass collection, Mulching is not the Magic bullet either, personally I am seeing a larger profit, since my Walker purchase, I was charging bagging price, for the "double cut" manicured look while I "muched" for two seasons. I do still mulch/SD lage 5-20 acre acccounts, but I do more grass collection than mulching now.
