Lawn and leaf vacs make short work of fallen foliage

 

We love our trees for the shade the offer, and the quiet rustling of leaves on a summer day.

But when deciduous trees do their thing in the fall, maybe we don’t love them quite so much.

Fall leaf cleanup is easier with a lawn vac

Instead, you could let leaf and lawn vacuums do much of the work. While you ride or walk behind, these hard-working devices work just like a household vacuum, sucking up leaves and small twigs. Some include a built-in chipper/shredder forum to branch-sized sticks.

 

Because lawn vacuums move faster than you can possibly rake, you’ll find this annual chore is over in just hours, instead of days.
