With drought being a persistent issue year after year, water conservation is becoming extremely important. For those who have the ability to irrigate their gardens, they need to be able to maximize what water they have. One way is to mulch around the plants, to keep the water from evaporating so fast. I have used straw and wood chips previously.
And now, I'm going in a different direction. I'm using grass clippings. With so much grass to cut each week, I have an abundant supply of clippings. I just needed a way to collect or harvest them. So, I bought a lawn sweeper. I put it behind my tractor and away I went. This thing did an awesome job of sweeping up the grass. I have a huge pile of clippings already, with more being added each week. I think this is gonna turn out to be a brilliant idea. :-)
