For those of you who live where leaves fall, got any issues? Do you rake or mulch? Bag, burn, compost, rake into the street…? Are you the first on your block to clean them up, or the last?
I’m a mulcher. Our town has 2 free pickups each fall, if you put them in those big brown bags. Otherwise, you have to pay per bag. I just rake them out of the flower beds, and run over them with my mower. Started doing that after my son went off to college, and i found those big bags a bit too much to wrassle from the back yard to the curb.
I do it a couple of times each fall. So far I’ve done it twice, most of the leaves are down (and it has already snowed once.) But my neighbor to the north hasn’t done anything yet, so I won’t do anything until they clean up (or until I see a big snow forecast!)
