Recycle your fall leaves.

PileOfLeavesNourish your landscape with nature.

• Make mulch. Leaves are rich in potassium and micronutrients, which can be returned to the soil and eventually to your plants.

• Insulate plants. Leaves help insulate tender plants from winter wind and cold.

• Reduce. To help speed up the decomposition process, rake leaves into low piles and mow over several times. By shredding your leaves you will greatly reduce the decomposition process.

• Add to your garden. Leaves feed earthworms and beneficial microbes.



And don’t forget to treat yourself to a delicious fall inspired snack afterwards!
