That's one heck of a leaf pile! And the oaks have just as many more leaves left to drop...

Sure, but you'll have to wait until the other half of our leaves come down. :D Plus I haven't touched the ones outside the fence. :rolleyes: We have a dozen or so big oaks, so we have lotsa leaves every year! Huge piles to play in! :cloud9:

The leaf corral is just a huge mulch pile/compost heap. :o We put up a 4.5 foot tall fence in a rough circle about 10 feet in diameter and pile our leaves in there year after year. After three years, the bottom layer is turning into a really nice mulch :thumbs up I used it in the garden this year and everything did really well!

The place I grew up had a big leaf mulch pile in the backyard. I used to love playing in it! :cloud9: I try to resist the urge to play in mine, though, cuz there's always at least a few ticks in it at any one time... :o

I've always enjoyed raking :cloud9: The smell...the crunchy sounds...the dogs peeing on the leaves as I'm rakin' 'em up! :laughing: It's therapeutic exercise for us. :o

We used to do that when we were in the city. Now we have too many to mulch....we'd have a mulch layer about 3 inches thick across the whole lawn! :D Most of what we have is field grass so it smothers easily. :shrug:

that's a lot of leaves Hazel :eek:

It's windy today so the rest of them are coming down now. Looks like we haven't raked at all this year! :rolleyes:

It would be so much fun to be there, bury something really interesting for the dogs in the pile of leaves and then watch them tear them apart.
Do that for us will you Hazel. :laughing: Storyline and pics included please. :laughing:

Hmmmmm...interesting idea! :laughing: Course then I'd have to rake...again! But hmmmm...interesting idea! :p

:lightbulb: Might be an easy way to get the finished compost out from the bottom of the leaf corral next spring, too! :laughing:
