Those Autumn Leaves....Bag 'Em or Mulch 'Em?

Those Autumn Leaves....Bag 'Em or Mulch 'Em?

It is that time of year when deciduous trees have pretty much finished their colorful autumn display by dropping their leaves to the ground leaving a blanket of leaves to be dealt with by homeowners.

Now we know how fun it is to rake leaves into piles in order to let children and dogs have fun in the piles, but once the fun is over those leaves need to be removed from our yards.

Autumn Leaves Delaware CountySo how do you remove the leaves from your property?  Do you rake them to the curb or bag them for curbside pickup from your municipality?  Or do you use a lawn mower to mulch the leaves?

A few years back we acquired

 a lawn mower with a mulching device and I have to tell you we enjoy that machine! Yes there is a little raking that is involved in getting the leaves in a spot for the lawnmower to move easily over the leaves, but other than that we thoroughly enjoy the fact that we are saving time and adding nutrients to our lawn by mulching. 

This may not be a method for everyone, but if you want to save time and energy to do other things consider a mulcher lawn mower.  And according to this study in this link you may be helping your lawn be greener and healthier next spring!
