No doubt, you enjoy your beautiful treed garden for three seasons. But what do you do with all those fallen leaves after the fall? Clearing heavily-treed lots is hard when all you have is a rake. Leaving some leaves on your lawn provides mulch for the soil and impedes the growth of weeds. For the rest, a leaf blower makes a handy companion for corralling them into a manageable heap.
Leaf blowers are available in three power-drive systems. Some easy-to-start gas leaf blowers can direct leaves into a pile and also vacuum them into a bag. A backpack leaf blower is easy to carry as you work. Dealing with a cord makes an electric leaf blower more suitable for smaller spaces. The third option is a cordless leaf blower. They are lightweight and make less noise. Cordless leaf blowers have enough power to handle the lawn as well as hard surfaces around your home. Choose a simple cordless leaf blower, a high-efficiency gas model, or an electric model. Match your leaf blower to the volume of leaves you need to clear.
