5 Ways to Make the Most of Fall Leaves

Fall as we all known is the season when the leaves fall from the trees and we are left with the job of dealing with them. This means either raking or using a noisy leaf blower to make a pile that can then be carted away. According to Therese Ciesinski adopting this approach is a big mistake since these leaves are valuable to the gardener. Her article which I found on the Houzz website describes five ways to use fall leaves in the garden.

In fall my town holds leaf collection days, when homeowners (or their landscape services) blow or rake fallen leaves off their properties into big piles in the streets. Later a truck comes and vacuums them away. What I see being vacuumed up are dollar bills, the money these homeowners will spend next year on lawn and garden fertilizers, mulch and bagged compost. Money they might have saved if they?d simply used those leaves in their gardens.
