Raking Leaves
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Fall is here. The weather is turning cooler. The leaves in the trees have started to change colors. Instead of green, they are now red and orange and yellow. The leaves are pretty to look at while they are in the trees. But then they start to fall. At first, the leaves look nice as they fall gently to the ground. But before long, the driveway, the lawn, and all of the flower gardens are covered in leaves. The leaves aren't pretty anymore either. Now they are brown and dead. At this point, there is only one thing that you can do. Rake the leaves into piles so they can be hauled away.
 
2     It is tempting to use a leaf blower to get rid of the leaves. This isn't always the best solution. A leaf blower has trouble moving leaves that are wet from being on the ground. It also cannot get into tight corners. A leaf blower can be very loud. This would make the neighbors very unhappy if you were running it early in the morning. The best thing to do is rake the leaves.
 
3     Use a rake that is made for raking leaves. If you are unsure what one looks like, go to a home improvement store. They can show you several different rakes that will work for you. It doesn't have to be expensive. Get one that you think will be comfortable for you to use.
