From this in the fall:
To this in my driveway yesterday:
Every autumn the town of West Hartford vacuums up homeowner's raked leaves, sends them to a company called Envirocycle, and through nature's miraculous transformation they become black crumbly soft fluffy stuff in a couple years.
I bought a truckload, and it was delivered in a great big pile that I am using to fill some new gardens, enhance the soil in the old gardens, and otherwise spread around with gleeful abandon.
My only question:
Was the blue tarp really necessary?
Actually, you should always use a blue tarp for protection in any and all situations.
Otherwise you'd get dirt all over everything and it would make a mess in the cracks between the pavers.
Get the shovels out.
