    Supposedly it's this powder that you spread out on a pile of leaves and it forms a crust to keep the leaves from blowing away. I'm planning to do some leaves this fall, but I don't have the equipment to haul them away, so I will either be bagging or piling. If this stuff really works it sounds like it might be useful for after I pile the leaves for the county pickup.

    It's sold on amazon.com... is that a bad sign?

    Whether it's a bad idea that it's sold on amazon.com depends on what it costs to get it to you. The list price is $9.95 for a 150 sq ft bottle. Add in any shipping and compare the price to what your local Toro dealer can sell it to you for. Each bottle will cover an area approx. 10 by 15 feet.

    It's the first I've ever heard of it here at Lawnsite. Give it a try and tell us how it works. Don't forget to include the cost of the Leaf Lock in your leaf clean up.
