September Nature Tip

Leave Leaves Alone. Our annual ritual of raking, blowing, piling, bagging and trucking leaves out of residential neighborhoods robs our yards of one of nature's greatest resources: rich, natural compost.
The alternative, leaf mulching, is good for the environment, it's good for your garden and it saves time and money.
Instead of using a pollution-emitting leaf blower, leave your leaves on your lawn, or just mow them like you would the grass. Don't blow...mow!
