I hate doing yard work. I used to mow the lawn, but we gave up on that. We just let the grass grow and grow into a jungle. I do have to continue racking leaves. That sucks because I there’s so much space for the leaves to collect, plus there are so many small rocks in out backyard that I pick them up along with the leaves and it makes the yard waste barrels more heavy.
Last year, I made the wise decision to buy a leaf blower from Good Will. It was pretty cheap and all it needed was an extension cord. Worked like a charm, so now racking leaves is that bothersome.
