The beautiful colors of fall have finally peaked here in northeast Alabama, and that usually means you will see people raking their fallen leaves, but that doesn’t have to be you!

Leaves are a valuable resource and contain essential plant nutrients that will break down and help fertilize your yard. If you have a lot of deciduous trees dropping leaves in your yard, you may want to run your lawn mower over them with the lawnmower deck raised high to chop them into small pieces that will decompose much quicker.
