Leave the fall leaves alone

Leave leaves aloneWhile having a look at the New York Times’ homepage, I came across an article that caught my attention, “Rake the Leaves? Some Towns Say Mow Them “ calling to leave the fall leaves alone in the garden.

There, they can provide after having been mulched many benefits, from water retention to nutrients. Mulching, on top of being beneficial to  gardens also save time and money to homeowners and communities.

This is a simple example of how what was regarded as a waste can easily become a valuable resource. Such a reasoning is crucial to solve our current problems.
