As the autumn leaves fall and fill up the lawns of citizens across Central Illinois, the University of Illinois Extension’s Master Gardeners have some tips to prevent lawn disease and roadway disorder. Gwen Podeschi, a Master Gardener says that those fallen leaves make for great, natural mulch. She continued by explaining that leaving the fallen leaves for the incoming snow can produce negative outcomes for any citizen's yard.
Podeschi explains some of the uses for those fallen leaves and problems the Master Gardeners have heard recently.
Turning those leaves into mulch is easy says Podeschi, and it will save money when going to purchase new mulch for your next grow.
