therod Posted October 1, 2021 Share Posted October 1, 2021 I'm looking for advice and/or ideas here. And maybe there really isn't one. Here's what I have... My yard is a little over 2 acres. I bought 3 acres, but there is some woods behind the house, so I'm mowing somewhere in the area of 2-2.25 acres. I live in west-central Indiana, in the heart of farm country. We bought the property, which at the time, was farm ground, over 12 years ago. My father-in-law, who also farms, came over and tilled it for me. I planted some Kentucky bluegrass, mostly because I could get really big bags of that seed on sale at Rural King. I'm mowing with a 54" John Deere zero-turn mower. Most of the summer, I've been mowing it a little longer than normal because it's been so wet, and I haven't had as much time available, so I haven't been able to mow it as often. Kids sports are winding down, and my time available will be picking back up, albeit not for a very long time as far as the yard goes. Anyway, when I mowed it this week (Wed), I had more piles of clippings in the yard than I'm used to. And I really don't like that look. I went back out this morning, gassed the mower back up, raised the deck up to the highest level, and went over the yard again. Because I had piles of clippings everywhere. And going over the yard again didn't really solve the problem very well. Yes it spread the clippings out a little more and a little more thinly. But there are still piles and clumps of clippings all over the yard. I'd rather not put a bag on the mower because I know it will have to be emptied multiple times every time I mow. Other than that, and other than mowing it more often or mowing it taller, do I have any other options for avoiding the piles of clippings all over the yard?
