In the fall, the leaves of your deciduous trees or shrubs in your yard turn bright yellow, orange, and/or red before dropping to the ground and needing to be picked up. But, what if you didn't need to pick them all up? In "Fall Leaves and Their 3 Benefits," we'll teach you why you should "leave" some of your leaves on the ground.
Of the many garden maintenance tasks you will need to consider this fall, how best to pick up your fallen leaves is surely on the list. With our tips, we'll teach you the right way to do it and help you save time and effort spent raking and collecting all those leaves.
Listen to our quick segment on this "DIY Garden Minute" to learn about these 3 benefits of fall leaves.
