Dr. Dirt: Shredded tree leaves make great mulch


As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday, make sure those leaves are not clogging the house gutters.  Non-flowing gutters can cause some real problems during the winter.

Shredded tree leaves make great compost and mulch. Now is the time to make that final lawn fertilizer application. Fall fertilization also aids trees growing in lawn areas. 

Broadleaf weeds are still growing, so spot treat problem areas. Core aeration is still in order.

Now is the time to plant tulips with the lower soil temperatures.

Happy Thanksgiving, Dr. Dirt
