    I just bought a new leaf blower. My old one, and I mean old, finally konked out. I fill my green waste can up and use it throughout the year to add to my compost tumbler.

    I am surrounded by woods on 2 sides, neighbors across the road an done to the south that never clean up anything. I cant stand a messy looking place. It does not have to look like a manicured yard but needs to be clean.

    My primary means of attack is my riding mower, they get chopped up into little bitsy pieces, followed by a push mower with a rear bagger for the small areas and finally string trimmer and blower...

    I have started using my lawn tractor to just chop them up. In my neighborhood, the neighbors don't rake their leaves up so their leaves become our leaves and vice versa. Losing battle to rake them.... The only redeeming factor is that I have two big oaks in our yard so we win the leaf contest, over our neighbors, every year.

    This raises an important question concerning leaf blower etiquette.

    What process do you guys do when you blow off the driveway? I usually start at the end near the street and blow all of the debri back into my own yard to avoid blowing it all into my neighbors driveway across the street or into my own ditch.

    The neighbor across the street doesn’t share the same respect and all of his pinestraw and grass clippings end up on my side of the street along the edge of our ditch...

    Is there a solution to this or should I just start an all out leaf blowing war in which the debri will forever be blown back and forth across the road?

    Let Mother Nature settle it. Around here, one day the wind is blowing hard West to East and the next day just the opposite, etc. We never blow anything out into our street and try to keep our clippings to ourselves but the wind has other ideas. You can make yourself crazy trying to do anything else around here. The older I get, the less time I have to get wrapped around that axle.

    I have green space (town-owned land thick with oaks that will never be developed), so I don't do a damn thing until the wind has beat up the oaks real good, then I use my leaf blower and send them all back where they came from.:D

    Mine mostly the right side of my body
    One motorcycle crash
    One car accident in my late beloved gto
    One industrial accident they resulted in a 20ft fall into concrete that broke my right arm/wrist and jacked up my back shoulders hips and right knee
    One tractor roll over in 2007 that I could not jump clear fast enough and pinned me on the right side of my body with the steeeting wheel digging into my chest and compressing my lungs that the air was pushed out. That’s a odd feeling
    Seperated my ribs bruised lung and liver and jacked up right knee again
    I toughed it out for a week before I went to the doctor. Got a ass chewing of my life that day

    So cold weather hurts me
    Lol
