The trick to leaf mulching

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by lawrence stone, Dec 16, 2000.

  1. Is to move the November "winter" fert to a high N fert( 1lb N from 32 5 7) on or about October 1.

    Keep the turf mowed at 2 1/2 to 3 inches so there is a canopy to hide the leaf dust.

    Use the tine take twice a year (min.)to remove thatch so the leaf bits can contact the soil and decay.
