Calories Burned:  272 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
The American Council on Exercise's calorie calculator identifies two levels of yard work: heavy and regular. Heavy yard work is more intense and burns more calories. While mulching, if you're breathing hard and need to pause every few words while talking to catch your breath, you're doing heavy yard work, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

For example, if you weigh 175 lbs. and do heavy mulching for an hour, you'll burn about 437 calories. If you do regular mulching for an hour, you'll burn around 318 calories.

This site needs more home activities in the "calories burned" section for reference. I do a lot of strenuous activity around the house in lieu of regular exercising that helps!
