Good turf mowing practices (see video >)
Mowing your lawn helps your turf stay young and active. By giving it a close shave once every year you will promote new growth, reduce thatch, (dead underlying grass) and limit the amount of disease and moisture build up. By doing this your lawn will continue to perform and look good.
When mowing your lawn –
Catching or mulching turf clippings?
This is completely up to you. Both options have positives and negatives. Mulching the grass will help retain moisture in the soil and as the clippings decompose will add nutrients to the earth. However, sometimes a moisture build up will promote diseases within your grass. Catching the clippings will lessen the threat of disease, whilst giving you the added benefit of having mulch for your garden beds.
