The Leaves Are Falling…Leave Leaves Alone! (Mulch ‘Em…Its good for the soil and grass and…)

leave leaves aloneWith fall upon us, it’s time to revisit the whole leaf mulching idea. Here’s a link to a video of some landscapers demonstrating how they mulch their clients’ leaves.   Please pass this on to your landscapers and your neighbors. This is a great way to show landscapers that the trade is doing this very successfully.

Again and again landscapers tell us that their clients don’t want them to mulch leaves. We KNOW that is not the case so you can play a BIG PART in this movement by asking your landscaper to mulch this fall.

If they have any questions, they can call these landscapers: Tim Downey, (914) 557-1415 Aesthetic Landscape Care  (English) or David Duarte (Spanish) (914) 490-4123 Five Brothers Landscaping.
Many thanks for playing your part in this movement!   You can also learn more here:http://www.leleny.org/

    I’m a homeowner who has always mowed and mulched the grass clippings. Now I need a newer mower anyway and I want to mulch and leave the leaves. I understand the recommendation to use a Gator blade and a Vulcher — but can anyone recommend a good mower model (gas, push) for my 1/4 acre lot? I’ve watched the videos, just need some advice on a mower purchase for doing my own work (I do not use commercial landscapers).

    Thanks.

      We referred to the Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em website. This link will take you to some of their suggested resourceshttp://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?bbn=4543152011&qid=1350235254&rh=n%3A2972638011%2Cn%3A!3238155011%2Cn%3A551242%2Cn%3A128066011%2Cn%3A4543152011%2Cp_n_feature_browse-bin%3A4601419011&sort=salesrank
      but if you are not satisfied – you may want to go back to that site for further reference. I hope this helps!

  2. Its going to be the best thing for mulching hopefully but before following it one should surely get it checked so that the things are surely done the way it is explained in here like the leaves drying here rightly good for soul and grass.
