Want to reclaim your weekend in the fall? Experts say to try these easy steps to tackle the necessary evil before the snow falls:
1. Mulch grass instead of bagging. Grass is made up of 80% water and easily breaks down into nutrients.
2. Use a leaf blower to clean out the gutters. And make sure to clean the gutters before raking!
3. Rake leaves into rows instead of piles. This makes bagging more manageable.
4. Bring a 5 gallon bucket with you while weeding and cleaning out beds. It won’t get too heavy as you move along.
