When my wife and I first moved into this home, the two of us were the most gleeful about the backyard area.
- It was spacious, the sod was yellow, plus there was a fantastic oak tree that shaded the back of the house.
In previous years, the two of us were living in a small studio house with no yard, so you can picture just how happy we each were! Our first summer time came plus went in the new house, and I’ll be totally honest with you, it was a lot more hard than I thought. I was now responsible for mowing the sod along with pulling weeds, which was cutting into my free time on the weekends. I was extremely excited for fall to arrive, because I thought there would be less sod to mow, however, currently I have the leaves to worry about from the oak tree, then they fall everywhere. On top of that they’re so hard to wash up plus throw away. I don’t even assume where all these leaves keep coming from, because I’ve raked our yard at least many times now! Not only do I find myself needing to rake the leaves, but I also have to worry about them clogging the outdoor unit for our Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system. I’m not sure exactly how, however the leaves keep getting stuck in the sides, which makes my Heating, Ventilation plus A/C plan run slower plus less efficiently. I didn’t have any idea that this was going to be an issue, until the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional told myself and others it would cause one if I didn’t continue to keep a constant eye on it. Instead of cleaning it out every weekend, I obtained a slip cover to go over the outside of the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C equipment. So far, this has been working much better!
