I have always raked leaves since I don't know when, but when my son brought this craftsman lawn mower home this Spring to pick up grass clippings I knew this would also work great for picking of fall dropping leaves.

Much faster process and I like how it shreds the leaves up along with picking up the grass clippings. These two combined will make some mighty good organic matter in my garden beds and in the compost pile.

I decided to just spread out the leaves and grass clippings on the garden beds and let it remain till Spring then we will till in .

Improving my vegetable garden beds is a must and really haven't done it for years, I know this will help restore any nutrients depleted but it will take a few years to accomplish but each year should see some results .

Hoping for better yields and less disease problems, and since I have 5 large maple trees with a load of leaves this is a great resource for me to use.

I also have always used the leaves for mulching , some say no because it can harbor pest but I have done it for years and haven't really seen much of a problem. I figure in nature the leaves get spread around the plants anyway by the wind so really just makes sense to me it is a natural process.
