Leaves Are Excellent for Mulch
Mulch is a material that is used to protect the soil and to inhibit weed growth by covering the ground. Good mulches include wood chips, leaves, grass clippings and compost. They can benefit your lawn and garden by preventing erosion, suppressing weeds, retaining soil moisture, moderating soil temperature and adding nutrients as they break down slowly.
