Be very careful when it comes to the amount of leaves you aquire. Several years ago I contacted a lawn care company and asked them to bring me some of the leaves that they collected. Lo and behold, right at dusk a large dump truck appeared in my driveway and dumped an entire load of leaves. The pile went from one side of my driveway to the other and it was about 4 feet high. It took 3 of us, days to transport the pile to my garden area and chop them up. Needless to say, I had way, way too much leaves. Will never do that again!
