Ways to Deal With Fall Leaves
Keeping Your Backyard Beautiful This Fall

US MED Gives BackThe colored leaves are picturesque and beautiful on the trees, but their charm flies away when they pile up in the yard. Getting rid of them is a job that can make your arms sore and your back ache. Here are a few techniques that can help you avoid that fate.

* Remove them the traditional way: rake, but do it right. Start in the afternoon when leaves are dry and light. Instead of pressing on the rake, rake lightly, barely touching the grass. Pull softly toward yourself so your shoulders don't get sore.

Designate several target pile spots. Start from the farthest point and work toward the pile, pulling softly.

When leaves are falling fast, rake every few days instead of waiting until they accumulate.

* Mulch them with the lawn mower or garden tractor. Before they get too deep, go over them a couple of times. The mulched leaves fall on the grass and turn into fertilizer.

* Use a leaf blower to clear them out of garden spots and from around fences. Between raking or mulching, you can use the blower to push leaves off of the sidewalks.

So get outdoors, get some exercise, and get raking! Enjoy the fall weather while tydying up the yard, but remember, it doesn't have to be hard!
