When the leaves change colors, it can be quite a beautiful sight to behold. When the leaves start falling off the trees then they become an annoyance. The kids may love to jump in the big piles of leaves but it can be quite strenuous to gather those piles and bag them up for the garbage men. You don’t want piles of leaves to become a liability claim on your homeowner’s policy. Leaves can cause damage to your lawn or block drains and gutters.
