5 Ways To Use Fallen Leaves In Gardening

Share |

It’s time to prepare your lawn and garden for the winter. We wrote about some lawn care tips but now it’s time to think about what can we do with alll those fallen leaves. Here are five ways of making use of dead tree leaves.

Leaf mulch

We adviced you to compost and turn them into mulch for your grass. But you could also turn them into leaf mold, which you can then use for organic gardening. The process may require a year or two, but it’s definitely worth it and allows you to get rid of the leaves in an eco-friendly way.

Your pile of leaves can also be a great natural insulation material for roses and other tender plants. You can cover vegetables with them too to provide a winter harvest.

Finally, if you don’t feel like raking and ridding from the fallen leaves in your garden, don’t. You will be doing your garden a huge favor as leaves are an organic matter that aren’t just giving warmth to plants and their roots but also enrich the soil as they break down and give shelter to insects like butterflies and moths.
