How to Make Dead Leaves Decompose Faster

Reusing leaves at home saves landfill space and is often more convenient than municipal composting.

Fallen leaves will gradually decompose where they land, eventually contributing slightly to the structure and moisture retention capacity of the soil. However, if your landscape is covered with a thick blanket of leaves at the end of the growing season, you will likely choose to rake them up. Whole leaves are a suitable mulch material for prized landscape plants and eventually break down, but composting the leaves turns them into leaf mold, which serves as an excellent soil amendment or attractive mulch.

 

1

Rake the leaves into rows on the lawn and run them over with a lawn mower to shred them or otherwise cut them up with a mulcher or shredder. Rake the leaf pieces up again and repeat the shredding. The smaller the individual leaf pieces are, the faster they will decompose.

2

Build up a pile of compostable material, adding leaves and other materials in alternating layers and creating a carbon to nitrogen ratio of about 30 to 1. Leaves have a carbon to nitrogen ratio of 60 to 1, while the carbon to nitrogen ratios of grass clippings, food waste and rotted manure are about 19 to 1, 15 to 1 and 20 to 1, respectively. Adding a thin layer of garden soil between the alternating layers further accelerates decomposition.

3

Water the leaf pile when you build it and as needed throughout the decomposition process to keep the materials constantly moist, but not soaking wet.

4

Mix or turn the pile of leaves periodically, or whenever the center of the pile no longer feels warm to the touch. Turning the pile about once per month is usually sufficient. Once the leaves are no longer recognizable and the pile has a uniform, dark, crumbly appearance and earthy smell, it is composted enough to use as leaf mold.

Things You Will Need

  • Lawn rake
  • Lawn mower or leaf shredder
  • Garden fork
  • Grass clippings or other nitrogen-rich materials
  • Garden soil (optional)
  • Hose or other watering implement
  • 10-10-10 fertilizer (optional)

Tip

  • If you cannot add high-nitrogen materials like grass clippings or food waste or garden soil to the leaf pile but still want to encourage rapid decomposition, work about 1/2 cup of 10-10-10 fertilizer into a pile of about 20 gallons of somewhat compacted leaves.

Warning

  • If you smell a sour or offensive, ammonia-like smell around the leaf pile, turn it immediately. The bad smell is indicative of anaerobic decomposition, which results from a lack of oxygen during the decomposition process. Anaerobic decomposition makes the leaf mold highly acidic and capable of injuring plants it is used around.
