Let’s jump into the pile of reasons why you should leave leaves be this coming autumn 🍂.
Did you know that over half of the nutrients that trees take out of the soil through their roots is stored in their leaves? As the leaves decompose in your garden, the nutrients and organic matter can improve the soil and make it more fertile, making leaves a good natural mulch for your garden. Shredding the leaves will prevent them from creating a too-thick layer that can block air and water from penetrating the ground. Additionally, shredding the leaves is important in order to get the most benefit, the fastest. #STIHL #SeasonalTips #autumn #autumnleaves #garden #trees
