I have been mulching my leaves for years. It sure saves a lot of raking and bagging. It is good for the environment too. It is surprising how when I run my riding mower over them a few times they just seem to disappear. I have seen lawn services use the same approach also. It works well. : )

Then I am going to pat myself of the back for helping to eliminate wasted landfills and space we waste away.

Then when the winter sets in, it will do the rest! Mother natures knows the science...NOT GOVERNMENT.

Kill the environment all for the sake of $20,000. Typical. What a city will sacrifice to make a buck.

No thanks, won't be a part of it. That will be extra bags for whomever wishes to participate in the killing off our earth.

When that environmental "tree killing" blatant waste of tax dollars coupon comes I going to shred it and use it for some craft project. Then I am going to go out this fall when natures beauty of the season begins and marvel at mother's earth's glorious season change with vibrant colors she grants us with. The most beautiful time of the year when the leaves begin to take on the most vibrant colors that awe us.

Then I am going to grab the rake and lawn mower and I am going to mulch those leaves up and put the natural nutrients that our trees desperately need right back into the soil.

Going to add a layer around each of my trees, my flower beds and my garden, some for my house plants and the rest will go back into the earth of my yard.
