A Riverdale 2020 Spring Cleanup

There's a Patio and Garden Somewhere Under All these Leaves!


We all lead busy lives and for many homeowners (lucky for me), cleaning up the various garden areas isn't a priority. I just think of it as job security!

This post goes over a recent spring cleanup in Toronto's Riverdale neighbourhood. Or, rather, a delayed fall 2019 tidy up since the bulk of the work involved raking up last autumn's leaves.

Here are some pictures from the backyard: As you can see, nothing intricate, most of the job involved scraping up the wet and matted maple leaves which were becoming nice leaf compost.

This back raised garden area was full of weed tree saplings which germinated from nearby Tree of Heaven and maple trees.

The front area shown below had a few weeds but pruning the overgrown spirea and yew shrubs near the front steps was the priority:

My cordless electric leaf blower came in very handy in cleaning up the newly exposed flagstone.

And, again, in the front afterwards. Clear access of the paths and front steps ensured.
