Why mowing over leaves is better than raking them

“Skipping the annual fall raking chore will appeal to most home gardeners and the kids they recruit to help. Apart from the fun leaf pile the kids and dogs can jump into, raking isn’t on the top of most people’s “fun outdoor activities” list. While cleaning up can have its place in lawn care, by choosing to mulch leaves instead of raking, them you can:

  • Improve the health of your soil
  • Have a positive impact on the environment, helping insects and critters, and supporting microorganisms that live in soil
  • Save money on plastic garbage bags by opting for a more ecofriendly approach”

Other benefits of mulching your leaves include reducing the need for city yard waste pick up and gas-powered leaf blowers. Of course, mulching is much quicker than raking and will make the chore of disposing of leaves a lot easier. If you plan on mulching with your mower make sure that it is rated to do so by the manufacturer.
