Laidback Gardener Tip of the Day

Free Mulch Awaits You in Most Neighborhoods

octobre 25Every gardener knows that the very best mulch is chopped leaves and that leaves are also a vital ingredient of compost. The problem is that, once you begin using fall leaves wisely, you often run out of them. Fortunately, there is an easy and cheap supply of leaves, probably right next door. Many people still bag their fall leaves and put them out for their municipality to recycle. (Hard to believe, isn’t it!) So simply steal the leaves your neighbors put out! In my neighborhood, this has become so popular that you have to be quick or someone else will get them!

Garden writer and blogger, author of 65 gardening books, lecturer and communicator, the Laidback Gardener, Larry Hodgson, passed away in October 2022. Known for his great generosity, his thoroughness and his sense of humor, he reached several generations of amateur and professional gardeners over his 40-year career. Thanks to his son, Mathieu Hodgson, and a team of contributors, will continue its mission of demystifying gardening and making it more accessible to all.
