As the vibrant leaves of Seattle’s trees start to tumble, it’s a reminder that autumn is upon us. Instead of seeing those fallen leaves as a chore, consider them a valuable resource for a more sustainable garden.

In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of composting your fallen leaves and how Seattle Sustainable Landscapes can help you with a fall clean-up that turns this seasonal ritual into an opportunity to contribute to a greener tomorrow.

The Benefits of Composting Fallen Leaves

  • Natural Fertilizer: Fallen leaves are packed with essential nutrients like carbon and nitrogen. When composted, they break down into a rich, nutrient-dense soil conditioner that enhances your garden’s fertility. This “black gold” is a natural fertilizer that helps plants thrive.
  • Improved Soil Structure: Leaf compost improves soil structure, making it better at retaining moisture and nutrients. It also encourages beneficial soil organisms, such as earthworms, which aerate the soil and further enhance its health.
  • Reduced Waste: Composting fallen leaves reduces the volume of yard waste you send to the landfill, lowering your environmental footprint and supporting a circular economy. By reusing this organic matter, you’re helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Cost Savings: By producing your compost, you save money on commercial fertilizers and soil conditioners. Plus, you’ll have a renewable source of organic matter for your garden year after year.
