Killing Leaves

Today's view of the back yard from the garage:

There's a lot of fallen leaves there, don't you think?

Of course, I could rake them up, but I prefer to use the lawn mower to run over them, letting everything mulch into small pieces.  Easier for me, better for the yard.  And, very satisfying to see clear strips of the yard where I've been.

  1. I'm usually too lazy to rake up leaves so I always leave them for the lawnmower.

    1. Thanks. The tree was a six foot tall housewarming present when we moved in 25 years ago.

  3. Hmmmm I use the 'wait til a big wind blows them into the neighbors yard' method. His boys love driving the lawn tractor to mulch them.
