Using Lawn Mower As Mulcher

About: I am a Dad to two kids who are constantly need attentions. I am passionate about anything related to technology, Internet of Things, Arduino and Raspberry Pi, I am good at fixing things that is broken to red...

Quite often I am being faced with a dilemma of trying to clean up all the tree trimming and mowing the lawn. Suddenly an idea came, what if I can use the lawn mower as the mulcher to mulch all the tree pruning as well. Well apparently you can so here goes.

Step 1: Start by Trimming All Your Trees

Trim your trees using hedge trimmer, cutters or the like. gather them closer together.

Step 2: Mow the Lawn As Usual

Mow the lawn along with the prunings. I am using an old electric lawn mower. So I am not sure whether this will work with all the other type of newer lawn mower. Best if you check that the blade is strong enough to be able to mulch through all your prunings.

Step 3: Empty the Mulch

Now all your pruning should be mulch nicely and compacted along with the grass. All you have to do is just emptying it into the bin.

Relax.

    I do the same thing. I do all the trimming, edging and trimming hedges, cleaning flower beds, etc scatter on lawn and then mow and bag. That way once you mow everything's done except blowing the hard surfaces clea and emptying bag onto compost pile.compost
