Fortunately, this is a task that I hire out — it is the only yard work I don’t do myself.
Ten healthy, growing Maple trees simply produce too many leaves for me to deal with. So, I called my favorite leaf service and in a couple hours, a team of three had the leaves corralled into the pile pictured below.
Although it looks like they might be ready for curbside leaf pickup, we don’t enjoy such a service where we live. In fact, we don’t even have a curb. Part of the service includes pickup by a separate company.
As of today, the pile is gone — and with it, my leaf responsibilities for another year.
