Mulching Leaves or How To Ditch The Spotless Lawn
"Each year something amazing falls from the trees: It feeds your grass, it's totally natural and it's absolutely free..."*

Have you heard the slogan "Leaves: Love 'Em and Leave 'Em" ? It's an Environmental & Cost-Saving Initiative of Westchester County and Local Municipalities [*watch the PSA].
The Pleasantville Parks Department will be mulching leaves in all public parks — why don't you give it try? After all, mulch-mowing is as simple as it sounds.
