A Guide to Using a Leaf Blower
Once fallen leaves start littering your yard, you’ll wish you had a leaf blower. As with any power tool, however, a leaf blower can be dangerous if you don’t know how to use it correctly. As long as you follow a few simple rules, you should be able to keep your property free of leaves with minimal effort.
Before you start using a leaf blower, remember to put on your safety goggles and ear protection. You should also make sure the debris on your property is dry enough for a leaf blower to be effective, and that you aren’t using your leaf blower at an hour when your neighbors might be asleep. Whenever possible, blow with the breeze rather than against it. For easy cleanup, consider blowing the leaves or debris onto a large tarp.
