Recycle your green residues at home!

  • Compost leaves and lawn directly on your lawn.
  • Shred your leaves with the mower! As they decompose on the surface of your lawn, the leaves will provide additional mineral elements to those provided by grass clippings, compost or natural fertilizers.
  • Compost your green residue in your home composter.
  • Save the leaves for use in home compost throughout the year.
  • Leaf compost is an excellent fertilizer that corrects overly impermeable or too porous soils by absorbing 300 to 500% of its weight in water.
