raking leaves

Low-tech Leaf Mover

At our place, leaves are raw product. We gather them up and run them through a shredder for mulching perennials before winter. The problem is, of course, that we can’t mulch until we’ve had a hard frost and the weather has turned cool, if not cold.

Battle of the Fallen Leaf

Leaf gathering is nearly over for us in the Northland. Recognizing the value of leaf mulch, we stockpile ours for late-fall shredding.
