Frank Marino from the Glen Gate Property Care Division gave a presentation Jan. 31 on mulching grass clippings back into the grass for the Greenwich Conservation Commission. The workshop was all about maintaining landscapes with a focus on the environment, and was also given to landscape professionals who serve the Greenwich community. More than 50 people attended.

According to Glen Gate, which serves towns in Fairfield and Westchester counties, there is a demand for smart landscaping based on ecological principles and a regular question is how organic yard wastes benefit homeowners’ lawns and environment.  

Glen Gate also gives a composting lecture every year to the Miller-Driscoll School, explaining the benefits of composting and what should or should not be composted.
