Recently, we happened upon an almost-new electric mower/weed whacker combo and decided to purchase it. The mower will be powerful enough to “mow and shred” leaves on a flat lawn surface. These leaves can then be reused on your site as mulch for garden beds, thereby closing the loop right at home! We can also stockpile large piles of shredded leaves on site in the fall for future use in spring.
The weed whacker is ideal for quick spring cleanups of ornamental grasses, meadows, and mass-planted, dormant perennials left standing for pollinators and visual interest over winter. Lighter- weight than gas-powered models, it is also quieter and does not emit polluting fumes!
We’ll continue to use our electric blowers as well during our spring clean-ups.
