With all the rain this autumn we are having a problem with wet leaves trampled in on the the surface of the hard path on Mayfields North. They are rapidly turning into organic mud and can't be removed with a leaf blower or the battery rotary mower we use to pick up and shred leaves in a drier autumn. We have resorted to scraping them off with a wire lawn rake which works but is slow. Does anyone have any better ideas please?
Most parish councils in York city have a community Christmas tree decorated with light etc. I would like to see that next year a rooted tree is planted to grow. This is a much more sustainable way than the cut specimen and can be part of the 50,000 trees target the city council has set itself for the next 3 years.
