Shredded Leaves are often considered to be the best organic mulch available for use in the garden. Leaves contain a great number of Nutrients, are lightweight, and biodegrade quickly.

The major disadvantage to shredded leaves is that they are almost never available commercially, so the gardener generally has to make them herself using either a leaf shredder or by running them over with a lawn mower.
