Mulching can only be done when certain conditions exist. He is the Pacific NorthWet, the mulch window is about 45-60 days in July and August. Every year we get a pack of broken belts, bent blades from the wet grass having no where to go.
I did not make this crap up, it comes from ODPE folks. (Outdoor Power Equipment)
Ambient temperature has to be above 68 degrees in a 24 hour period.
NO rain, or watering for 72 hours.
Only mulch no more than a half inch at a time.
If you are spitting little green balls of wadded up grass out the back of your deck like a rabbit, you are wrong.
I dont care what the (insert brand name here) salesperson said. These are the plain and simple facts about mulching.
