Bring on the GFS.
I'm channeling Kevin a little in my new digs. I'm no longer taking the 1-and-done approach to leaves. Mowed yesterday and did the second leaf blowing (with the vast majority still on the trees). For many in my neighborhood, lawn upkeep is highly regarded. It's a neighborhood of modest 70's houses. As they get sold, the new owners are doing some significant rehabs. We're doing our part in that regard--some ourselves, some outsourced. Lack of attention to the lawn is increasingly frowned upon. Fortunately for me, I have woods in the back so I just blow things over the stonewall.
Our property itself requires a major landscape overhaul--an incredibly steep grade and heavy shade is sub-optimal to say the least. Looks like a lot of folks in the area have tackled/are tackling similar challenges. Tree removal, regrading, retaining walls, new top soil. Cost-wise, this will be a deferred project.
