Leaf Cleanup Process

 I wanted to explain the process we use to get the parking lot clean from all the leaves during the fall.  We get several questions about how we do it.  We know along with the beautiful fall colors, there comes a big cleanup process in return.  It is totally worth it!

First we get everthing off the grass and push it out into the parking lot.

We try collecting it into the middle of the parking lot aisles as best we can.

We have a nifty trailer box with a vacuum that sucks up the leaves really well and then we dump the leaves into our compost piles in our back area behind the president's residence.
This vacuum is so handy and we are grateful to have it.  It makes the work go so much faster!
