Wait until the leaves are dry before using a leaf blower and use the leaf blower once a week minimum. Wet leaves are hard to move unless you are using a high-powered blower.  A leaf blower is most effective for gathering the bulk of a lawn’s leaves into large piles, to be removed with a tarp or by hand. Making sure your yard is free of leaves not only improves appearance but influences the health of your yard. Leaves block the sunlight which your lawn needs in the fall to store up food for winter dormancy.

Leaf blowing can help clear leaves and debris easier and faster than raking or sweeping.  Leaf blowing gets leaves out of prickly bushes a bit easier than hand-pulling them. Shredded leaves from your own property are far better than purchased wood mulch which can harbor diseases.  So, having a mulching bed will turn leaves into nutrient rich soil. Finally, leaf blowing gets people outside on a nice day.

However, the negative side is that leaf blowing kicks up allergens, dust, animal feces, and other detrimental particles. So, you should wear a mask when using the blower.  The blower is noisy, obtrusive, and can cause hearing loss.  So, you should wear earmuffs or ear plugs to protect your ears from noise with every use of your backpack leaf blower.  The noise can also annoy neighbors if you use your leaf blower more than once per week even during periods of high leaf droppage.

Leaf blowing is useful for the removal of flammable debris from around buildings during fire season. Blown leaves tend to blow back if they are not collected, bagged, or shredded to use as mulch. Birds nest in brushy areas, in bushes, and even in lower growing trees. Blowing leaves out of these areas year-round can tear apart bird nests and affect the good insects, garden snakes, and small mammals that live in leaf matter.

New Jersey law, S437, prevents the sale of gas-powered leaf blowers.  Gas-powered leaf blowers are loud and pollute more than many cars.  Montclair, Summit, and South Orange all have a seasonal ban on leaf blowers. Princeton’s town ordinances permit electric leaf blowers all year round.  In NJ, the owner or occupant of any property, or employee or contractor to provide lawn care or landscaping services, shall not sweep, rake, blow or otherwise place yard waste, unless the yard waste is containerized, in the street.  Many cities have enacted municipal codes that prevent property owners from blowing leaves into the right-of-way. The action is considered illegal dumping and can carry fines up to $500 and/or six months of imprisonment, depending on the locale.
