Is it possible to mulch too many leaves?
The leaves are falling like crazy. Last year, I raked them. This year I am mulching them. I am wondering if there is such thing as mulching too many of them. Thus far, they appear to be breaking down relatively quickly between mows. However, it has gotten cold here over the past week and I assume that the decomposition will slow down.
What is the general rule in regards to mulching the leaves? If I have to bag for a week or two, that actually isn't that big of a deal since I can just throw them in the compost pile. But since I am introducing organic fertilizers this year I would love to return the leaves back to the soil!
