Best Way to Rake Your Leaves

When it comes to fall it means that there are going to be a lot of leaves falling onto your lawn. There are many different methods to raking leaves. However, there are some methods that provide quicker results than others. There are methods for both dry leaves as well as wet leaves. The harder among the two being wet leaves most definitely. Energy Smart New Homes wants to help you when it comes to those unwelcoming chores. We will help you make them as light as possible.

Dry leaves

There are several different methods in which to gather these leaves. There is of course the traditional way to gather leaves. However, this of course means that it will be hard work and take much of your time. There are other ways of doing this that are more efficient. If you have a mulching feature on your mower and a bag, then you can mow the leaves and bag them. This requires little effort on your part and can save you time. If you don’t have this feature though then you can use a leaf blower and gather them up this way.

Wet Leaves

There always seems to be a struggle when it comes to raking wet leaves. While try as you may to rake them there is no use because wet leaves just don’t rake. However, the best method of gathering those types of leaves it to mulch them just as we talked about before. If you want an even easier time gathering them together then you’ll want to just wait till they dry out if you’re going to have a couple of days of dry weather. That seems obvious but often we have a schedule and don’t want to be deterred when we have set aside the time.
