The shade helps keep you home cooler through the summer and gives you leaves to compost or use as mulch for your garden and flower beds. Don’t want to rake? Just run over them with your lawn mower (with a mulching blade) and turn them into free soil amendments for your lawn.

You’ll save using potable water and not sending relatively clean water to a treatment plant, saving electricity on that end, too!
