Garden Therapy: Leaf Relief

If you're not raking up leaves in your neck of the woods yet, you will be very soon, so I have a few tips to help make the job easier. Once you've raked the leaves into big fluffy piles, consolidate them by raking them onto a large tarp. Then, drag your leaves to their final resting place, whether it be a backyard compost pile or in the green bin. Another trick? Run a lawnmower over your leaf piles, which will cut them down to size and speed up backyard composting time. Source

I live across the street from a huge park and leaves are constantly blowing over to the front fo the house. I've been raking up leaves all summer. This just reminded me to get leaf bags.
