I recently discovered years worth of leaf mold in the wooded area behind where I live. There is such an abundance, I think I can take enough for my small garden area without causing any harm. My only question is, what would I do with it? How does one use leaf mold in a garden? I've heard it's amazing, but have no idea how to use it.
All advice will be greatly appreciated.

|I would simply use it as mulch and spread it over the top of the soil. Others may have more creative suggestions.

|You could top=dress all your planting beds. Or mix with your soil, when planting. Some people divide perennials by cutting/digging a chunk off the plant in ground, and filling that hole left with compost, ( or your leafmold) or other improved soil.
