Rake Fallen Leaves

dead leavesWhen you rake up all those dead leaves add them to the compost heap or put them all in a black bin liner with a few holes in the bottom and tuck them away somewhere out of sight.

In about 18 months you will have a fine, crumbly leaf-mould which is great soil conditioner or mulch for your garden.

If you are planning to add the leaves to the compost heap, run over the ones on your lawn with the mower, this will chop them up and mix them with the lawn clippings so they break down much quicker.
