I dont think that there is anything more that I hate then falling leaves. When they first start to fall, they are pretty, but that gets ugly pretty quickly.
Leaves to me are all those things in life that are wrong, things that you may have made mistakes on, etc and its all getting back at you. Leaves dont stop, once they start to fall and you find someone to get rid of them, they come back onto your lawn. You could clear your entire lawn of every leaf there was, you turn you back and there they are leaves averywhere!
Thats why sometimes I say I would rather deal with snow, you shovel it, its gone, at least until the next snow storm.
Not sure with leaves....
I gave up raking or blowing leaves on my lawn several years ago. I just continue to use my tractor and then my Honda Mower/Muluching to mince up those leaves. Lots of them fall into one of my drivewalls, so today I did battle with them. I mulched them up and down using my lawnmower. Now, a few people looked at me kinda of strange, because I was using my lawn mower up and down my driveway.... but it works.
One neighbor just smiled as I was doing this.. He said, I thought you were crazy two winters ago, using your leaf blower to get rid of snow of your patio, but I found out it does work, so, maybe I should start to mow my driveway
