What can you do about your fall clean up? Keep reading and let us help you out.
- Composting – this is the “green way” of ridding your property of leaves. What you want in order to have good compost is both brown and green ingredients. Using preferably dried leaves, will make a fantastic carbon for composting. For those who want to really do this right, cut or shred the leaves in order to make their compost faster (you’re welcome).
- Warm Up Your Plants – fall leaves are actually great for warming up plants and insulating them. Wrap your fragile plants using wire fencing. Then fill in that inner space with dry leaves from your yard. Yes, you can follow this tip for your plants you have in containers.
- Mulch – the truth is, as most can guess, dried leaves make a wonderful mulch. The most effective way to get this done is mowing over the leaves and mulching (cut the grass but don’t bag the clippings) them up. Then spread out the leaf clippings evenly, ensuring that you don’t have thick clumps anywhere on the grass. Thick clumps can damage your lawn.
- Have Some Fun – take a little time while working hard to enjoy yourself. Play in the piles and throw them in the air. Enjoy the yard you’re working hard to look after.
