Cleaning my property

At this time of year as in every year, I spend a lot of time clearing up leaves. We have a couple of trees in our garden and there must be a million leaves on each, and I am not joking!


I clear them up by mowing the lawn and then using a rake as well. For a month or so it's a losing battle. I have to say the new leaf blowers are good as you can quickly clear a lawn of all leaves and my old dad used to say that leaves left on a lawn are not good for the grass as they cause "leaf burn".


Be interested to see what others do

I don’t. I garden for wildlife. The most I do is quickly rake fallen leaves into a pile in a quiet corner. It’s amazing to see what creatures find shelter there. A time saving, life encouraging system. Give it a try.
