Hello, I am seeking final reports and/or studies related to grasscycling campaigns;specifically campaigns that targeted single-family residents to mulch mow, cut-it-high-let-it-lie, and reduce/eliminate fertilizer use. Our plan is to deliver a program in 2012/13 that focuses on reducing the amout of grass we collect and haul to commercial composting facilities. Some ideas we had include delivering educational workshops to targeted neighborhoods and providing mulching mower rebates. Any barrier and benefit research related to grassycycling or natuarl yard care would be welcomed too. Thank you!
