shredding oak leaves
I have 5-6 very tall oaks over my back yard, so I have a lot of leaves. I'd like to use them, either as mulch or to compost, but need to shred/chop them. I've been reading reviews of different options- don't really want to buy a big, gas-powered chipper (overkill) but am concerned one of the smaller electric ones will have indigestion with oak leaves. Seems like some of the electric ones use string (like weed-whackers) and some have blades. Anyone have any opinions?
