My neighborhood has a lot of trees, which makes it gorgeous in October and a pain in the ass in November. We have a pretty small yard but since it's surrounded by trees it gets seriously buried. This year filled up 56 yard waste bags in the front yard alone. THE WORST! I hate those bags. They are way too tall and way too skinny.
Here's a claw hand I created out of a broom and a rake to get the leaves in after the bag was half full and you couldn't tip it over any more. I don't know how other people do it, but this is basically the least efficient process ever.
Anyway, the trees are finally bare so today was the last day of yard work THANK GOD.
