How Long To Wait After Applying Weed Killer Before Using Grass Clippings For Mulch In Garden

Question From: L. DeNofio - East Greenwich, Rhode Island, United States
Q: HI Nancy, I often use grass clippings for mulch in my garden to keep weeds down around plants as well as keeping new plants moist. I just had weed killer and fertilizer put down. Is it safe to use the clippings now or should I wait any length of time?

A: Larry, you should cut 4 or 5 times before using the clips for mulch. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
