I live in Ohio and the oak trees have just showered us with their messy whatever. It has collected around my shrubs, flowers and everything. Will they damage the plantings? Should I try and get as much up as I can. We are going to mulch as soon as they are done shedding.
I also have oaks, and I live next door in Indiana. I know that oak trees are very acidic, so when I rake the leaves in the fall I try to rake up the acorns as much as possible. Since we moved in last year I’ve put in a veggie garden, and I’m wondering if the acorns and leaves will damage my soil for veggies.
