Yard Work

October 29, 2007 at 8:18 am 1 comment

I really do enjoy being outdoors and doing yard work.

When we first moved into our new house I was worried about what I would do because I was so used to updating and remodeling our old house and this one doesn’t need anything done on the inside. At least according to me.

Little did I realize that living on 1.1 acres with trees all around you would create its own work. I spent most of this weekend cleaning the gutters. Similar to these:

The previous owner put in some guter gaurds but they are the cheapest ones I have seen and they are installed incorrectly so I had 1 inch of wet mucky leaves throughout the second floor gutters. And these gutter guards had nice sharp edges so my hands look like i lost a fight with a cat.

I am thinking in the spring I will install somethign more like these:

They look like they snap into the edge.

Today I am off work so I am going to spend 2 – 3 hours mowing the grass/leaves.

    Don’t bother with the gutter guards like those. All they do is make you gutters useless. The leave conjest ontop and keep the rain out of your gutters. YOu will then have to scrape the leaves off of the gutters guards. You are better with nothing. Or the Gutter Helmet which is a bazillion dollars.
