Leaf Mountain21st February 2011 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
I’ve temporarily moved my hurdles that keep critters off my raised beds and used them to corral my ever-growing pile of leaves. Over the years I’ve found that if I don’t do this, the heap sprawls into the surrounding area and I don’t get a decent depth of leafmould to excavate. Wire netting inevitably starts to bend and break, so these hurdles should be a good alternative. By the time I need to use the hurdles in the vegetable garden the leaves will have settled and I can restack them into a more compact pile.
