Homeowners should either attempt to mulch leaves into their lawn
mulching mower, or compost leaves in a pile for later use in the garden. Organic matter in leaf compost enriches the soil in
flower beds and gardens, and makes clay soil more workable early in
the spring, by increasing the amount of organic matter.
For those who don't garden, curbside
pickup is usually provided during the fall season by most
municipalities, sometimes for a nominal vacuuming fee. Below
we see a photo of a large curbside municipal leaf vac.
