If you dread the piles of leaves you have to rake each fall, you might get to skip it, and blame science!
Popular Science has this whole article on why it’s better to skip the raking, and just run over the leaves with a lawnmower a few times!
The idea – turn your leaves into a sort of mulch. Over the winter your lawn will be mineralized and ready to be full all summer long!
If you live where there is a lot of show, you should get started on this now. If you leave those leaves full size, you’ll kill your lawn.
