Garden clean-up: this is how to get rid of all of the autumn leaves in one go


Leaves are super easy to clean up

Autumn is in full swing and there are leaves everywhere. Right now, it’s still looking very pretty; all of those autumn colours scattered everywhere. But it can get a bit tedious after a while. Those leaves can get very slippery and that can cause some dangerous situations. That’s why it’s best to clean them up. This is the easiest way to do it!

It’ll prevent a lot of nasty falls.


First of all, it’s important to rake all of the leaves together in one big pile. We can’t make that any easier for you, unfortunately. What we can do for you is to make the next step a lot easier: getting rid of them. There’s a simple way to clean them up all at the same time. Put down a tarp or large piece of canvas and secure it with a few heavy stones or flower pots. Now, sweep all of the autumn leaves towards the middle of the tarp. Remove the stones and then fold the corners of the tarp inwards. You’ll be able to pick up the tarp, and with it all of the leaves, and carry them away. You won’t have to walk back and forth between the leaf pile and the compost heap. It’ll save you a lot of time!


If you want to make things even easier for yourself, you’ll want to buy a leaf blower with a vacuum function. This way, you can vacuum up all of the leaves and be done with it. It works just like a vacuum cleaner. Your garden will be leaf free before you know it. We definitely can’t make it easier than that!
