Since tree leaves are already derived from plant material, they will break down easily in the dirt and nourish your crops. So when you’re outside raking the yard, save a pile of leaves to lay down right over your garden soil.
Grass clippings work in a similar way to leaves. They prevent weed growth and help preserve moisture in the dirt when you spread them on top of your soil.
Apply your homemade fertilizer once when the spring season hits to encourage your plants to grow!
