Fallen Leaves Can Be Helpful

Shredded fall leaves are a wonderful inexpensive option in regions where decidious trees release bushels of the mulching material each autumn.

They're an attractive, practical mulch. Your lawn mower is the perfect tool for chopping fall leaves. Once they are chopped, apply a thick layer as mulch over your flower beds.

Editor's Note: We do this every year and it works great it also decomposes and improves the soil too.
