Leaves

About

One of the best organic fertilizers available is composted leaves. Leaves are an excellent carbon source and leaf compost improves soil quality and structure. Mulching mowers and mulching blades can chop leaves so finely, that you can leave them right on the lawn. Lawn equipment businesses sell these items. Check your local stores.

You can also rake them directly into your gardens to act as a cozy blanket for your plants all winter. Leave them all winter and they will break down quickly into soil in the spring.

Some landfills and transfer stations in the County of Peterborough also have special arrangements for handling green waste. Ask the attendant for more information or call the County at 705-775-2737.
