Every Back to Eden Gardener can benefit from having a Sun Joe Electric Leaf Mulcher Shredder Model SDJ616 for shredding fallen leaf foliage to use for mulching your vegetable garden and orchard. By shredding your leaf piles you can quickly turn your yard debris into nutrient-rich garden mulch that will decompose faster into amazing soil. When broad leaves are used as a mulching material without being shredded they can create a thick matt that prevents water penetration and air to the soil. By making your own leaf mulch you can shred fresh green leaves from prunings to add a free, renewable source of nitrogen to your wood chip mulch. The fresh green leaf mulch will enable your high carbon wood chips to decompose faster and turn into premium growing soil.
