I am completely lost with landscaping - first house. Suggestion for leaves


I used to live in western NY, what we used to do is mulch them like you ended up doing, then in the spring when it started to warm up, use a hose end sprayer(Like the type supplied with Miracle Grow)....I cheat and take off the nozzle and place the container mid line on my garden hose...but you can put it anywhere on the hose you use to water your yard.....add a couple of cheap, and cheap is the key...cans of beer to it...the beer will activate the bacteria and help it break down the nutrients in the mulch for use faster....I also make sure I have a few Good Beers for me to consume while I walk around the property too....another thing I add to the mixture is Liquid Fish emulsion and a couple of small squirts of dish soap...not detergent....Do a google search for Jerry bakers, Tips, Tricks and Tonics.....his mixtures from generally avaiable home items is awesome....but this is what I use to stop having to thatch my yard after so much mulching......
