When you have fallen leaves in the garden, one way to take care of them is by bagging them up and putting them out as yard waste. A more eco-friendly way to take care of them is to put them back into your own yard and garden. Yet, this can take up a lot of space and be slow to break down in your flower beds. By shredding and mulching the leaves instead, you can save a lot of space. Plus, it’ll make it easier for the material to break down in the garden soil or your compost bin."* She distinguishes them from leaf blowers in that "leaf mulchers will have a functionality much like a vacuum that sucks up the leaves into a compartment while shredding them at the same time."
