Growing up, I was a kid who enjoyed jumping in the pile of raked leaves instead of helping to get them to the curb. I guess as an adult not much has changed. Thankfully at my house, I really only have one tree in my front yard - that's it. There are some leaves in my backyard, but not many.
I still have to get them all together. However, since my yard is tiny, I plan to just use my lawnmower to bag them and put them in my backyard to use for mulch later on. Nice and easy. No hours of raking to the curb and watching them blow EVERYWHERE!!
