My new wife and I recently purchased our first home, which is a ranch style house on 7 acres in a wooded area. Something we didnt consider when buying the house in the spring is the amount of leaves we would be burdened with in the fall. this year we tried our best to rake them all to the ditch and burn as many as we could, but we didnt even scratch the surface in the week of evenings and weekends we worked. Plus the ditch looks terrible now with all the burn piles in front of the house.
does anyone have any suggestions for easier removal of our leaves and hickory nuts?
