cost savings in the long run
I am seriously considering buying a chipper/mulcher. I have lots of bushes that I am getting rid of and every fall I am overwhelmed by many many leaves. The one I want is around $500. I think that I could ultimately save by not needing to have compost delivered. I need lots of compost for my new garden, the soil here is hard clay. Also I could save by not needing to rent one (at $150 a day) for my current clearing project.
If you have one - has it ultimately been a money saver for you?
