|Partially processed leaves exhaust from deck towards un-mulched area.|
|Move more slowly than when mowing grass to allow finer leaf chop.|
|About 2/3 to 3/4 width intake under mower deck is optimum.|
|A second pass over leaf debris ensures finest chop.|
"Everyone benefits from green practices that improve our environment while also cutting costs, so New Rochelle is delighted to work with the Westchester Community Foundation on this positive initiative,” said New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson.
“The Westchester Community Foundation is pleased to partner with the cities of Yonkers and New Rochelle in support of ‘Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em.’,” said Catherine Marsh, Executive Director of the Foundation. “We commend Mayor Spano and Mayor Bramson for their leadership in jointly promoting this low-cost and innovative “green” program that reduces waste while saving homeowners and municipalities money.”
