So the neighbor's tree drops a big branch into your yard, squashing your shed. But look at all those branches to make into an arbor, and all those leaves to use as mulch to smother the weeds under the lilac!

It's a stumper for sure.

We for two are trying to reuse on site as much of what grew here as we can. All those leaves, the wood, the fruit was made from water and nutrients drawn from this soil. We no longer want to pay for yard waste bags and fertilizer.

So we put some of our yard waste reuse ideas into a video on our Youtube channel. It's Get Ahead in Early Spring, part 7. Check it out. And send us your ideas to share wth others. Email janetandSteven@GardenAtoZ.com or better yet, post ideas on our Forum where everyone can see them right away.

All three are made from materials grown right on that property.

Little sticks, fallen branches and autumn's leaves can all be pretty and useful on-site!
