Most people know the importance of paper and plastic recycling, but what about leaves? The advantages of leaf material in the landscape are numerous. Keep these benefits in mind when raking this fall:

 

 

Before recycling leaves in the landscape, ensure the leaves didn’t come from a diseased tree. Leaves should be completely removed from the landscape if the tree suffered from fungal issues or other diseases during the growing season. This will help prevent re-infection the following year.

Re-using leaves from healthy trees promotes healthy garden growth in the future and prevents the leaves from being hauled away as waste. KTS offers leaf mulch as a landscape option. Click here for more information on leaf mulch.
