Leaf clean up in the fall often seems never-ending, especially when your yard is home to lots of trees. Leaf clean-up methods often depend on the size of the lawn, the number of trees on the property, and the ‘homeowner’s ability to handle the chore. A basic rake isn’t expensive and can be purchased at any hardware or home improvement store. Even some grocery and discount stores carry rakes. Raking leaves, depending on the yard, can be a long and taxing process even if you have an extra set of hands helping you. When choosing a rake, look for one that is ergonomic and easy to handle.
Leaf blowers may take less effort than raking, but they can be noisy and heavy to handle. On average, a corded leaf blower may not offer enough power to move the leaves off the lawn, while a gas-powered leaf blower can be bulky. When using a leaf blower, a tarp is needed for transporting the pile. We recommend a large polyethylene tarp, about 9-feet by 12-feet, or an old shower curtain can work as well. All you have to do is, spread it flat and blow the leaves onto it. To move the collected leaves, thread a sturdy cord through the tarp or shower curtain grommets. Knot the ends, and it can be carried away. Your lawnmower can be used to grind/chop up those fallen leaves, working to eliminate several hours of raking or leaf blowing. Mowers have the power to reduce leaves to tiny bits if there is only a light layer of leaves on the grass. Using the lawnmower for leaf clean up does not work well for heavy blankets of leaves. The mower will strain and likely will stall out.
