“Falling” for Those Leaves in autumn!
This time of the year raking leaves and getting ready for winter may not sound like much fun. Why don’t I just leave them there? Here’s a few reasons why.
The grass underneath the leaves can be smothered. It may affect your grass from growing well during the spring. Regardless of whether you use a blower or a rake, think of what you want to do with the leaves. No need to make more work for yourself!
Once the leaves are piled up if you have kids around they have an answer: Jump! That’s lot’s of fun for them, but for us we need to consider our choices.
Composting: This is a good way to prepare for next year’s gardens and flower beds. The leaves will decompose and become compost more quickly when they are shredded before being placed in a compost bin. A mulching lawn mower will work for you before you rake, and then the shredded leaves can be added to your bin.
If you’re able to try it! Composting is an awesome way to help reduce landfill waste and create a healthier garden in the spring.
Mulch: Mulch can protect your soil from heat, cold and wind. It can also be used to help reduce weeds. Mulch eventually breaks down into compost too.
You can add many organic materials to your compost bin: leaves and grass clippings; garden waste, newspaper and paper towels, and kitchen scraps, such as vegetable peelings and eggshells and mulch. However, don’t add grease, bones, meat, or fish in the compost pile.
There has been lots of talk about how we can save the environment, and caring for our yards during the fall can be a way we can do our part to help. Enjoy these autumn days, and after you get all those leaves raked up, go ahead and jump in them! “Mums” the word!
