    Right now, your lawn could seem like a complete mess of various Leaf_Raking_Tips.jpghues of red, yellow, and orange. You miss your luscious green lawn and are looking forward to uncovering it from the blanket of leaves. There are a few things you should know before beginning this task. Weed Pro has the top tips and tricks for you today!

    • Clear the walkways- Start with the walkways to avoid people tracking leaves all over the house.
    • Small sweeps- Several small sweeps are much better than less long sweeps. You’ll trap more leaves this way.
    • Use a tarp- By using a tarp instead of a wheelbarrow, it will save you a lot of bending and you can just drag it around the yard. Plus, if you need to take a break, just fold the tarp over to protect the leaves from the wind.
    • Wait if rain- Don’t try and attempt to rake wet leaves, it will be more trouble than what it is worth.
    • Mulch if you can- Especially if you have a large yard, it might be easiest to use a riding lawn mower to mulch the leaves instead. To learn more about this time-efficient option, click here.
