Now that the snow is gone, (it is gone now isn't it?) all that remains is the soggy, rotting leaves by the curb and in the street. I see many people have been moving the decomposing mess from the terrace into the street to keep the grass from dying.
You'd think there'd come a time when the city would no longer be responsible for cleaning up the leaf mess from the fall. At some point you'd think homeowners would want to clean it up themselves instead of creating another flood hazard by shoving it into the street.
This is one problem we've never had at our house. Even though we have large trees in and around our yard, we don't rake. I grind up the leaves with a mower and leave them to fertilize the lawn. Granted we don't have the world's greatest lawn, but at least we don't have to worry about chemical exposure when I fertilize.
