When autumn comes, dead leaves quickly invade the lawns and terraces. You probably use a rake to put them in a bag and put them in the plant waste, or even put them directly in the manure.

So the trick is to use your mower to pick up the leaves, where possible and most importantly to benefit from shredding at the same time. So less space occupied in the bags or in the case of manure, you will have a faster decomposition.

This is very significant for certain leaves such as those of the chestnut tree which decompose very slowly.

In places where you can’t use your mower, pick up the leaves and then spread them on the lawn, for example, and all you have to do is walk over them!

Pass the mower over the dead leaves to crush them and collect them

The crushed leaves are then dumped on the compost heap
