Are autumn leaves piling up in your back yard? Here’s how to make use of them.
Leaves can be added to compost heaps and will decompose faster if you add a little manure for nitrogen first.
You can also shred leaves or pack them into black rubbish bags to break down over
winter then use the mulch on flower beds to conserve moisture and restrict weed growth.
It’s also a good time to prune deciduous trees and shrubs.
