How to mulch  Leaves

How to Mulch Leaves We strongly encourage mulching grass clippings with a mulching mower, and we recommend the same type of mower for leaves. A mulching mower uses unique mowing blades in conjunction with "baffling" under the deck. The leaves or grass clippings are cut multiple times as they circulate in the interior chamber. The finely chopped material eventually gets pushed down onto the lawn surface. Occasionally, leaves will have to be mowed several times. It may seem a little tedious, but it is far more cost-effective and labor-saving than alternatives like raking or leaf blowing. Benefits of Mulching Leaves A study by Michigan State University indicates that mulching is 100% beneficial for the lawn. Mulched leaves are decomposed by earthworms and microorganisms and turned into plant-usable organic matter. Mulched leaves are better for the greater community, too, because they stay on site and out of landfills. Oak leaves and maple leaves were mulched and redistributed through test lawns and found to have a negligible or beneficial effect on turf quality and color. They had no negative effects. Mulched sugar maple leaves even appeared to inhibit broadleaf weeds such as dandelions. www.moeslawncarenorfolk.com
