As the hot summer days turn cooler, trees shed their leaves in preparation for cooler temps. While a leaf blower is an easy way to manage fallen leaves, it isn’t very kind to the planet; it’s believed that gas-powered leaf blowers can emit as much pollution as cars. Clearly, a manual rake is the greenest option. But for many people, raking isn’t always the most doable solution, so try the next-best thing: an electric leaf blower. They don’t generate any emissions, are generally quieter and are now cordless, which makes them a breeze to use.
