Ideas for using fallen leaves in landscaping

8 years ago

I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle leaves from over 100 trees in my yard. Going with the flow seems best with some deadfall areas and other areas raked into "islands" surrounding tree and bush groupings. Multiple pine trees contribute great pine mulch but they are mixed with deciduous leaves too. Would sprinkling fertilizer or lime over leaves cause them to break down quicker in the islands? Thinking that helping the leaves decay quicker would give a nicer appearance once spring arrives. Thoughts?
