Leaf This Property!

Autumn is here, and you know what that means: scarves, pumpkin spice lattes, jack-o-lanterns, and crunchy leaves! While leaves are always beautiful colors in the fall, they may not seem as pretty to you when they are burying your lawn.

Contrary to popular belief, the snow does not make leaves magically disappear over winter. They can serve as a barrier between moisture and your grass, making next spring less than green. You worked hard on that lawn! It was nothing but a pile of dirt when you first moved in! You don’t want those nasty leaves to suffocate your flourishing grass!

So, we have come up with a plan for you:

1). Rake up the leaves into one massive pile (I know you really don’t want to do this. It’ll be worth it, though. I promise).

2). Jump into the pile.

3). Throw leaves into the air.

4). Repeat step 2.

5). Go to the store and buy specialty leaf bags. Specifically the Halloween themed ones with pumpkins drawn on them.

6). Go home and shove all the leaves into the bags! Leave the bags around your lawn or by your front steps—see, you don’t even have to lug them anywhere!

7). Congratulations, you just saved your lawn from doomsday while simultaneously decorating for Halloween!

8). Once Halloween is over do one of three things:
a. Put leaves in a compost so they turn into fertilizer!
b. Use the leaves as mulch for your garden!
c. Dump the leaves on that annoying neighbor’s lawn from down the street and let them deal with it!

9). See? Easy.

Now, go gather a rake and all the helping hands you can! Have fun with it, and make sure you go out before the snow hits!
