[ARCHIVED] Green Tip of the Week No. 166

Join us at City Hall on Wednesday evening June 12 at 7 p.m. for a live demonstration of mulching. The benefits of leaf and grass mulching (shredding in place) include:
• A healthy property: Mulching recycles nutrients into the soil to feed lawns & plants, provides a free natural fertilizer, and helps retain moisture.
• Saving time and effort: Mulching leaves in place is easier and faster than raking or blowing them to the curb.
• Helps the environment: Transporting and disposing of leaves wastes energy and contributes to pollution. Also, leaf piles block streets and traffic, clog storm drains, and result in excess nutrient runoff (phosphorus & nitrogen) polluting our waterways.
