Nothing says "I Love You, Dear" like screaming lower back pain!
Did you buy up a golf course or something? :P
Just a couple of acres! There's about a dozen or so sugar maples, a half dozen apple trees, a couple of black cherry trees and a lone crabapple tree. Raking leaves is going to be major task, maybe I'll just run over them with the lawnmower :-)
You're gonna' need a fleet of lawnmowers.
Get a mulching blade, run them over and let them be. Raking that is a thankless task. The other option is to bag them with a mower and make a compost pile. Just remember: Garter snakes love compost piles. Just sayin'.
I need a compost pile for the garden. Garter snakes don't like lawnmowers. That fleet of lawnmowers is sounding good.
