5. We use wire rounds to pile up leaves in the fall

And by spring the bottom 2 feet or so is leaf mold. It rains a lot here, so they have an advantage over other parts of the country that donít get as much rain. The worms do their magic but itíd take another year to get to the top two feet of the wire round. I tend to use those top two feet of not-quite-leaf-mold in my garden beds in the next fall, or even in the first spring if Iím building a new bed.
