Use Leaf Mould As Compost

The orange, reds and browns of autumns leaves scatter the ground and fleck the skyline this month. Gardeners may find less romance when faced with a strewn lawn and clogged pond though, not to mention the relative dangers of a mulchy, slippery path. If there's one job to be done an Autumn day, it's raking.

The fallen leaves do have their benefits, with many worm-helped nutrients as they decompose. With that, they can make very effective compost, too. After raking, use the Grange Wooden Composter to help them decompose, with the resulting mulch helping your plants and shrubs out a great deal in the next season.
