Now that all the leaves are falling we will all have to go out there in this chilly weather to take care of mother natures mess. These leaves get everywhere and plug up those darn gutters. While it may be a nuisance we have a few tips that may help with your leaf picking escapades.
If you find yourself wanting to rush through picking up the bulk of your leaves try mowing the lawn and using a bag to pick up all of the leaves. You may also do this and lift your lawnmowers cutting level so it acts almost as a leaf vacuum just taking the leaves into the bag. After you have done this you can place the leaves in a paper bag you can get at your local hardware store and place the bag for pick-up.
Another quick method to pile all those leaves up is to use a leaf blower with an extension cord and make a pile that way, causing less strain then than the other methods. Especially when you think of the traditional raking method of picking up the leaves.
The last part of the clean up process when it comes to fall is cleaning those gutters. Always make sure that you have a ladder that stays secure while you are picking those gutters clean. Leaving gutters clogged causes damage not only to your gutters but also to the side of your home. Make sure you clean those gutters so that doesn’t happen.
