The Irvington Library

Mulching-in-place is not only better for the health of our lawn/garden and the environment, but can save significant time and money.

Removing leaves from our property robs the soil of much-needed nutrients that enable the healthiest growth of turf, plants and trees. By shredding fall leaves with mowers and simply leaving them in place on the lawn or scattering them throughout landscape beds and wooded margins, our lawn and beds will develop better soil, as well as be better protected from winter freezing and absorb more water during the growing season.

• Save money: Your tax dollars are used more productively elsewhere. You’ll reduce your need for commercial fertilizers, and never buy mulch again.
• Save effort: Many homeowners (and landscapers) find that mulching leaves in place actually is easier than raking or blowing them to the curb.
• Help keep your property healthy: Leaf mulch recycles nutrients into your soil and helps retain moisture, reducing the need for watering in dry spells.
• Help the planet: Transporting and disposing of leaves from your curb wastes energy and contributes to pollution.
