But what can you do with all those fallen leaves?
1. Mow and Mulch- Use your mower to shred the leaves and let them decompose and offer nutrients back into the soil. Free fertilizer!
2. Save for home compost bin- In order to compost you need brown materials, aka. fall leaves so store near compost bin to layer between green materials, aka. kitchen scraps or grass clippings
3. Rake into beds- Cover garden/flower beds with leaves for winter protection and offer nutrients back into the soil. Again, free fertilizer!
4. Rake into bags- Collect leaves and deposit them at the nearest Ramsey County compost site
RAKING LEAVES INTO STREETS IS ILLEGAL!!!
All materials that fall onto our streets end up in our waterways. Do your part to keep our rivers and lakes clean!
