Here are my guerrilla garden beds I made in the corner of the city parking lot I rent a space in. I mulched them with fall leaves.
That's awesome. Thanks for the pics.

I picked up a few bags of leaves from my local community center. Time to get mulching next weekend.

I've not seen anything on the scale of ones used by Jean-Martin Fortier or Curtis Stone but I think Korekaranoka uses something similar, you might try sending him a message and asking where he got his from.

@Eric, for some reason I can't see your photos, if you'd like to put them in another post I can move them over into your original post.

That's a great idea for shredding the leaves Eric and the beds look wonderful.
