Different approach to pre winter mulching

Well as I was raking up the massive amount of leaves on my front yard and trying to squash them all in to the yard waste bin, i thought couldn't I use this as mulch.

So off I went to do some research and found that yes leaves can be a very good mulch. It decomposes well and costs nothing. There are some concerns about ph levels being effected in the soil but this is only after regular repeated use. Another bonus it looks very pretty and natural.

So the past 2 days I have been busy raking and distributing my leaves. I will just have to see how it goes with this horrible wind that has now blown up.

I love when I can reuse something to save money.
