Mowed fresh and healthy grass can be used to fertilize the lawn. Be sure that the blades are no longer than 5 cm. The safest way will be to use a grass container and only later spread the grass by hand around the garden. It is worth noting that there are no dried parts in it, only the green clippings themselves.

Cut grass will be great for compost. Before putting it in the container, it should be dried for 2-3 days in the sun. The grass on top of the compost protects it from drying out and retains moisture.
