"I've been mulching leaves for at least 20 years and the soil you create by doing this is unlike any other. Leaf mulch is more nutritional and safer for your property. Most commercial mulch is the by-product of dead trees - who knows what they died of? Leaf mulch comes directly from your property and does not contain any foreign elements." David Duarte, Five Brothers Landscaping
"I started mulching leaves last year (2010) and saved $400 a week in overtime, plus more than $1,000 a week in tipping fees. Mulching leaves on site is so much faster and more efficient. And it's good for the soil." Sean Ryan, Ryan & Ryan Landscaping.
"I have been mulching leaves for the past 3 years. What inspired me was the impact to the environment, the time savings and money savings that results from this method," Anthony Vulpone, Vulpone Landscaping & Lawn Maintenance.
We try to never remove leaves from clients' properties. I mulch 100% of the leaves on my properties, although 70% is acceptable, if you have tough conditions like steep slopes or rocks. The new equipment for landscapers really has made this possible. You can perform the same autumn cleaning in the same or less time as the regular weekly grass cutting time and that's it. You never touch those leaves again. Plus it leaves the leaves where they should be - providing nutrition to the soil," Aesthetic Landscape Care Inc., Tim Downey.
