Have you raked your leaves yet? Do you burn, bag, mulch, or mow them?

We haven't done ours. we can't decide if we are or not b/c our neighbor doesn't so we end up getting hers. We raked ours and hers last year just so we wouldn't get hers but it is so much work b/c we both have big yards. We do have a leaf sweeper so it speeds things up. We bag them b/c we aren't allowed to burn anymore. I miss that b/c I love the smell of burning leaves. Plus we can roast marshmallows.

  • Haven't raked yet. We have an all-in-one leaf blower/vacuum/mulcher. It's very handy and makes the job a lot easier to do.

  • We rake them into the street and the city picks them up and composts them. They sell compost at the dump.

  • Hehe. We had a windstorm before I raked and it blew them all over the neighborhood.

  • We mulch them. Shredded with the lawn mower then put around the base of our trees.

  • We have raked once. We live near some woods so we just take them down there. It's about time to be done again though.
