Don’t burn Autumn leaves. Instead fill large, holed sacks with moist leaves and seal. They’ll slowly turn into leaf mould , a great soil fertilisers. The sack can be used as a barrier to stop weeds from spreading.

Destroy weeds in your lawn without using a chemical weed killer by sprinkling a little salt on the centre weed. They will die slowly within a couple of weeks.
