Rake Them Up Or “Leaf” Them Be?
We live in area that prides itself on being the "City of Trees," so no big surprise, around this time of year we quickly become the "City of Leaves." That begs one important question.
Do you rake them up repeatedly, leave them until the end of season, or just leave them alone altogether?
I've seen both systems in my neighborhood. We have the house that seems to rake every-other-day and seems to have a golf course ready yard. I have a set of neighbors who never raked and removed their leaves (and frustrated the rest of us as their leaves kept blowing into our yards after we took the time to clean up). My method has been not to get too stressed over clean up more than every weekend or couple weeks.
What do you do? What's the right thing for your neighborhood?
