Put Fallen Leaves to Work!
Cleaning up your yard in fall can be an exhaustive task. Put that effort into good use by utilizing your raked leaves to enhance your properties functionality! Here are three great uses.
1. Winter Mulch
Dead leaves are an ideal winter mulch. Many shrubs and perennials need protection from winter weather and a 4-6" layer of leaf mounding around their base helps them thrive.
2. Lawn Fertilizer
Rakes are not always needed in fall lawn sprucing. Tackle two tasks this season by using your lawn mower to trim grass and to break up fallen leaves. Leaves in smaller pieces decompose more quickly and lawns reap the benefits. You can add a healthy dose of nitrogen to your landscape with this trick!
3. Composting Add leaves to your compost pile to increase nitrogen content and organic matter. Add leaves regularly as they fall this season and mix continuously to promote decomposition. Within 
3-6 months you will have a rich compost ready for spring planting!
Don't have a compost pile? 
Add leaves straight to your landscape soil and mix well! The leaves will decompose into the soil and will become a natural fertilizer!
