Rather than throwing away or composting all the dead leaves you rake up in your yard this fall, make Recycled Leaf Mulch. Not only will it give the leaves a new life and purpose, but it will keep your plants healthy and will serve as necessary ground cover to protect your plants against the snow (if you live in an area where the winters are harsh). Mulch can be expensive, especially for those of us with large gardens, and this budget friendly alternative is the perfect way to take care of your plants without breaking the bank.
