The grass is turning Green again and that's a Refreshing Sight to see after the long winter.

My son visited with his power equipment and trimmed some hedges, chain-sawed some trees and cut some branches. No raking. The yard is really to wet to be walking around on it. We will get that later. And we still got some ice and snow on the ground in shady areas that the sun has not been able to get through to.

I cheat and use my tow-behind DR Leaf Vacuum. It hooks to the lawnmower discharge and cuts them finer. Then piled them in long row on north side of garden to use for mulching the veggies and keeping the weeds down.

I can't even use nothing for weeds on my grass because I have 5 little dogs and they eat my grass.But rake my leaves and put them outside my fence to smother out the free blowing weed seeds.

The worst chemical I use on my yard is vinegar! Do need to get my leaves raked for mulch, and the wind can blow the rest. Be great if they'd ever get dry!

We have a lot of acreage, so we generally leave the leaves where they fall. I do scoop out what I need to refurbish my veggie garden and let the rest go back to nature. But, I have to say, I hate driving down the street on trash day with all the bags of leaves.

Hey, I'll rake your yards if you don't use chemicals on your lawn and I can have the leaves! They're the best compost ever.

We have several acres, so DH mows them when they fall and they become mulch for the lawn. It would be good exercise to rake, though. Maybe I'll rake those windrows of mulched leaves left by the mower!

I let the wind blow them where it wants too, then mulch whatever is left, and leave it on the grass to feed it.

We live in the middle of a woods and it seems like all of the trees shed their covering this past week. Hubby does this chore. Said as he was blowing them the wind pick up the leaves and took them over a creek bank - Yea!
