Grass Cuttings

New here so please my I ask a question about grass cuttings, I am saving the last lot of grass cuttings in a black plastic bag, I've read somewhere the resulting juice/fluid can be used to green up a parched looking lawn, -'m not sure by how much it should be watered down-

Hi Tonto,
Ive heard about this before too! This blog post says you need one part water to two parts grass clippings. 'Frugal Gardening 101:: DIY Organic Fertilizer :: GettingFreedom.net' (http://tinyurl.com/8rpchks )
Let us know if it perks up your lawn, its certainly a cheaper (and eco-friendly) way to keep the grass green. :)

Grass clippings left on the lawn will decompose naturally and return nutrients to the lawn. You don't have to go to the effort of making a tea from them, unless you just want to experiment with that.

Let's see. Black plastic bag filled with grass clippings. Mix one part of the liquid from that with two parts water. That should be enough to treat your lawn, assuming the lawn is a couple square feet.....
