Using Parks To Demonstrate Best Practices for Leaf Management
Scarsdale, NY has a helpful video showing another way to effectively process leaves on-site in town parks: mulch mowing.
Princeton could easily and economically be using its parks to demonstrate these methods, rather than, as was seen this past fall at Barbara Sigmund Park, bringing in heavy machinery to gather leaves up and haul them away. All this extra work is being seen at a time when parks maintenance is reportedly understaffed. All the more reason for Princeton's parks to be demonstrating best practices for utilizing leaves on-site.
