We’re in the thick of fall. And while in many places that means beautiful foliage making a patchwork of the landscape, it also means a constant battle to keep your lawn clear of fallen leaves. You can certainly rake and bag them, but there’s a better way to utilize dead leaves—and save some plastic from a landfill. Invest in a leaf mulcher, which will chew them up so they can then be used in your compost pile or garden, turning something previously useless into free fertilizer.

Leaf mulchers are all designed with one primary task: shredding leaves, typically with spinning impeller blades.

Here are several of the best leaf mulchers to help you take care of those leaves and create a more eco-friendly backyard.
