A perfect lawn IS the sign of a sick mind. Leave the Aspen leaves where they lie.

Good word...as metro says, leave the Aspen leaves where they lie and you will be more Poplar! Some people just Birch and Beech all day to get attention. If they want to Spruce up your yard, they should come and do it!
