I have a rear catcher MTD but really need a mulcher, can I simply change blades?
Some people like a darker green or denser lawn. Some get mowed once a year LOL.Golly, I've mulched for 30 years and like the results. Rarely fertilize, and then it is with no good reason other than, "Maybe I ought to buy fertilizer this year?"
Mowed once or twice per week when it rains. Had weeds pretty much under control until I had the fool notion to hire TruGreen. They killed half my grass. Have/had several species of grass, but it was green and kept dirt covered. Still recovering.Some people like a darker green or denser lawn. Some get mowed once a year LOL.
So are you saying you are weed free and mulch? Only thing I see to make that true is you might have cool season grass.
Yes! Believe my EGo height was set to 3rd highest of 4. Maybe 1/2" higher than most mow. The CC is currently set to 3", but I don't take that measurement as gospel. Is just the label on the mower for the height I found by trial and error.If you mow weeds before they go to seed then you do not transfer weed seeds all over the place
To mulch properly you have to cut as high as possible so the clipping have some where to go
If you mow high and the space between the blades of grass has clippings in it then that is almost the same as mulching a garden bed
If the weed seeds get no sun & are covered by clippings then they do not germinate particularly well .
So that only leaves broadleaf weeds and you get rid of them with a top dressing of Blood & bone with strait chook poo 50;50 dusted on top
People end up with lawns full of weed because they mow too low
