Composting Fall Leaves

Instead of putting your raked leaves out to the road for pick up, put them in large trash bags. In spring, you have ready made compost to use in your veggie or flower garden. It also can be used to refresh last year's soil. Be sure to poke a couple of holes around the bag for air circulation.


I never throw away valuable leaves, put them in your compost pile or compost maker. You can rake them in piles. If you have a shredder on your mower, shred the piles with your push mower, or just leave the shredded leaves that you mulch with your mower on the lawn. It gives great nutrients for your lawn over winter.

Do not throw away nature's finest cover. Use them to cover your plants in ground or to protect your roses over winter.
