Tally from this mission:
Eighteen "35 gallon" and "50 gallon" bags of leaves and sticks from the backyard and side yard.
The little $35 Ryobi leaf blower works a treat! On high-speed it will blow the egg-sized rocks out of our border areas, and the gyroscopic action of the spinning fan blade makes it hard to turn certain directions. Low-speed works great for sweeping the leaves out of where you don't want them, while keeping the dust down to a manageable level.
We're holding off on the front yard because the maple tree still has over half it's leaves.
