Autumn Leaves

I am just finishing up fall cleanup for my clients and see scenes like this one all over. What a waste! with a good mulching mower all these leaves can be chewed up and left in the yard to decompose over the winter and fertilize lawn and flower beds next spring. I have to bag up leaves for some clients with gardens too small to absorb all the leaves from neighboring trees, but most people, even those with heavily wooded lots, can put all their leaves to good use, rather than clogging a landfill somewhere.
