Leaf collection

If you're tackling your leaf mess yourself this year, here are some tips.

Mulching them with your mower can save a lot of time and actually leave behind really healthy nutrients for the lawn. Mow over the leaves and chop them into a dust. Do this weekly or else you'll have too much volume and the process will be a headache.

If you're committed to hauling away the leaves entirely, take them to Panorama Farm because they receive leaves for FREE. Check their hours before driving out there.

Don't forget to clean out your gutters! They need to be clear all winter long for snow and ice melt.
