What’s the most eco-friendly way to dis­pose of fallen leaves in my yard?

Martha Stewart Living - - Contents - —Daria Mar­lowe, Shaker Heights, Ohio

The quick­est (and com­pletely bag-free) method is to mow them into your grass; use the “mulch” set­ting on your lawn mower if it has one. You’ll cre­ate a nu­tri­ent-rich mix­ture that will help feed your lawn come spring. If you want to take mat­ters a step fur­ther, rake the leaves into a bag or a fenced metal or wooden bin, then leave them to ma­ture for at least a year—much like com­post—into leaf mold, which is ex­cel­lent to spread on your gar­den in fu­ture sea­sons.
