Let’s suppose you live in a community where there are buttloads of really old trees, and let’s also suppose that those trees are shedding all over your patio and even though you filled two leaf bags with leaves on Saturday, the patio looks like you haven’t touched it. Your community has a contract with a landscaping company. One of the things the landscaping company does is hit the leaves in the common areas with a leaf blower. Would it be so very bad to sweep your patio leaves out into the common area and let the leaf blower people take care of them? They came from the same tree, after all.
