Rake It or Leave It


For weeks we’ve been watching the leaves of Helena’s tree-lined streets bury the city. Each trip out involves crunching through a thick mat of dry leaves and digging out the car from a layer of yellow and green. In rentals past we would have just let the leaves accumulate, knowing we’d be onto a new rental in a few weeks. However, our mid-term (9 month) rental in Helena makes the yard and sidewalk our responsibility, so we decided to mix a little fun into our autumn chores with four easy steps.
