Grass clippings question

9 years ago

I have an abundance of grass clippings. I feed as much into my two compost bins as I can without overwhelming them, but still throw a bunch of it away. I don't have the space to create more compost piles. My question is whether I can just work them directly into the soil of my gardens as I prepare them for winter? I'm planting cover crop as I clean them up and it seems like mixing the clippings in would do much of the same thing. I'm also trying to prepare some additional soil for next year. The native soil here is alkaline and heavy, so it needs some organic matter. I till it up and mix in peat moss before planting a cover crop (red clover, faba bean, common vetch, rye grain) but was thinking about mixing some grass clippings in as well.
