Clever Gardening Technique

Enjoy Free Mulch
Allow leaf, flower, and seedpods that drop on the ground to remain as a natural layer of free mulch. If for aesthetic reasons, you prefer to rake some of it up, put it in the compost pile. Depending on region, 25 to 40 percent of material sent to the landfill is from the landscape; in other words, organic matter that could be composted and recycled into the yard.
