I don't like raking leaves and I haven't raked a leaf since I was a young boy. We used to have big leafy trees at the home where we grew up, but my house only has oak leaves and acorns. I heard we are supposed to just mow them into the landscape for mulch. Maybe to help keep the moisture in the lawn on these very hot Texas days. We had twelve straight days of triple digit heat, but I think it's going to start up again this weekend.
My yard is so dead, I'm thinking about painting my landscape green. I'm not sure how much it costs or how long it lasts, but if I can keep my Home Owners Association off my ass it might be worth it. Between the high property taxes and maintenance fees, home ownership isn't what it used to be. I guess it's true what they say, "you never really own your home!"
