How Do You Manage Leaves And Other Fall Prep

How Do You Manage Leaves And Other Fall Prep

Are you bagging leaves or cutting them up? Or leaving them be (no pun intended)? Or piling them for your kids to jump into? Or piling them to throw away, and your kids jump into them when you're not looking? Or hiring some random lawn service company to spread them around with loud leaf blowers for a slightly-higher-than-you-expected-fee?

Maybe you could keep it simple. Instead of hours raking and bagging, or spending hundreds of dollars of hard-earned money to lawn guys, pick a final day of the year to mow your lawn (which should be around the time leaves are prevalent on the ground), and cut the leaves with the grass. This is the best (easiest, and more natural) way to manage leaves. This allows the leaves to break down evenly over natural surfaces including the grass and mulch and soil on your lawn, the whatever area the wind carriers some of that material to.

Would you rather spend your Saturday afternoon briefly cutting the lawn, and the leaves -- two birds with one stone -- in a short period of time, or rake, bag, and dump? Bagging is a very human way to handle a natural problem.
