Can discarded grass cuttings be used in any environmentally friendly way instead of just throwing them in a corner of the garden to fade away.It seems a shame not to be able to put them to some good use at a stage where they have sufficiently decayed. I have a huge lawn and when weather is not suitable for mulching I would have quite a bit of grass cuttings stored away. Any advice would be welcome and appreciated.

Use grass mowings to make compost, mixing it with brown material such as fallen leaves and withered stems. This can be used to feed plants and improve soil.
