More and more home owners are choosing mulching their leaves as opposed to either raking them or bagging them.  Mulching makes more and more sense as it helps put back nutrients into your yard.  However, to get the full benefit of mulching try this helpful tip!

Give your yard a spreading of nitrogen!
That's right.  Good old fashioned nitrogen will start to break down your leaves and turn them into organic material for your lawn to absorb during the winter. 

Also it's a great time to put down a lime application.  Some leaves and pine needles will add acidity to the soil.  A lime application now will help keep your soil balanced and ready to go when  Spring gets here.  So don't put away your spreader yet!  Get down some nitrogen and lime and you'll see a healthier lawn in 2018!
