Tarps Work Better than Leaf Blowers

Americans love a new tool.  A tool that revolutionized leaf removal about twenty years ago was the noisy obnoxious totally unnessessary leaf blower.  Tarps work perfectly well for leaf removal.  I hate noise polution so I hate leaf blowers.  I believe that lawn work is a time to get into physical shape, not taking the lazy man's route.  Leaf blowers are gas or electric and use energy in their manufacture as well as in their use.  BOO hiss to leaf blowers.

This blog entry is also to document my wellness, as I am behaving as a responsible home owner would.  I have photographic evidence of my dedication to lawn conformity.  My old tomato plants were removed, my mint was trimmed, the remnants of wild asters were removed and the trumpet vines were trimmed back.  The leaves were transported by tarp as any naturalist would do.  There are no "rank" areas in my yard.


The rake is visible in the corner of the photo above.


In this picture below, you can see a hot rod, which was quite noisy.




This is a little bunny tail pulled off, most likely by a vicious feral cat or one let to roam by its owners.  I found it in the lawn.  


How to use a tarp.  1. rake leaves into a pile.  2. rake leaves onto tarp. 3. drag tarp to edge of lawn for pick up.
