My family has just moved from a very easy to clean modern starter home in a busy town, out to the country with they now reside in stone converted plendour. The garden backs on to land owned by what is still a very grand, grade 1 listed stately home, though it’s not been open for visits for many a year. Their land is full of trees, which look fabulous, especially at night and at sunset. The only minor draw back to this picture of beauty and wonderment is the amount of leaves that gather on the lawn. It used to be fun going through the local ark in autumn, kicking up great piles of them – that familiar rustling as you kicked them higher and higher! It’s not such a barrel of laughs when you have a mountain of them every hour of the day and you want to mow that lawn!
