Mulch those leaves

See those beautiful leaves falling. And see those beautiful leaves pile up everywhere, on lawns and in the roads. Now it is time to get your mower out and start mulching these things of beauty, or probably the end of fall would tell the story better. Just ride around in a square or circle blowing the leaves toward the middle, and keep cutting the leaves smaller and after a while the leaves almost become dust and go back to the Earth, instead of being raked up and being bagged, and transported away for mulching for someone else.

Save yourself some work, don’t put the leaves in the road where they can plug up the road drain and cause flooding of the street. Enjoy and have a nice fall and winter and spring and summer.
