Love Those Leaves

Run leaves through your lawn mower, and then add to a compost pile. For best results, alternate 4-inch layers of leaves with 4-inch layers of grass clippings.

Or, use leaves to turn part of your lawn into a garden bed. Run them through the mower, and then layer them 6 to 8 inches deep over a patch of lawn you want to transform. By spring, what you covered will be ready for flowers or vegetables.
