With the changing colour of the leaves, this is a beautiful time of year.
The red maple trees have never looked more red in our area and some of the yards and streets look like a sea of red.
I have noticed people and some seniors who are raking the leaves. This is very hard on one’s back.
May I suggest buying an electric leaf blower which costs $80 plus the cost of a long extension cord?
The blower collects the leaves and mulches them, which makes them more compact to put in the yard-waste carts. It easily takes the dead leaves off the top of the small Japanese maples.
This is an ideal job for a student who wants to earn some money.
