What To Do With All Those Fallen Leaves in Your Yard – Here Are A Few Ideas:

  1. Make Compost – shred the leaves to prevent them from blowing away. Add your leaves to a compost component with high levels of nitrogen. Check your local hardware store to see what they recommend to use.
  2. Make Mulch – when mowing your lawn shred what is already on the lawn and rake or blow the shredded leaves into your flower beds.
  3. Make Decorative Items – use large dried colorful leaves to make wreaths, cards, table centerpieces. They can be useful for a variety of projects. Let your imagination run wild.
  4. Get Some Exercise – have the family get together and rake the leaves into a big pile. You get a good workout and have fun with the family.
