Hi everyone. I know it's a different question to ask, but if you have a lot of leaves that fall, how do you keep them out of your gutter?? I live in the northeast and have a lot of maple and oak trees that surround my house. They sure are nice during the summer for shade, but in the fall when the leaves drop, what a pain. The ones on the ground I mulch with a mower; not a problem. But the gutters on the house and garage get really packed with them. I have to use an extension ladder to reach the gutters and I'm not crazy about height to begin with. I see different things advertised to prevent leaves from entering the gutter, but I'm not sure how effective they might work. I have to keep in mind that we also get some heavy snow falls and the weight might collapse a cheaper product. So, I'm wondering what others might use and what their experience has been. You members in southern California and Florida don't have to respond. I understand :sign0020:. Thanx in advance, Carmine.
