Just the way homes do, yards require upkeep. Not just the expected mowing and clipping and watering and pruning and mulching, etc, that go with showing off the effects of a green thumb. There’s also the hassle of removing the detritus. The downed branches, the leaves, etc. Anyone who has tried to carve out some time to “clean up the lawn” knows that it is a task that can seem far simpler than it is. The raking, the breaking and picking up and stuffing into bags etc, is actually pretty taxing and can easily eat up a large part of the day. Homeowner’s typically might not think of a wood chipper as a useful tool. But it can retool a homeowner’s view of the yard-chore norm, that is lots of sweaty back-breaking labor. You will still have to gather detritus. You will certainly burn some calories. But you will also be able to use your grinder in lieu of creating a pyre, which may be illegal where you live, or stuffing what you have compiled into bags. You can also create mulch and wood chips, thereby saving money. Depending on your property and needs there are small wood grinders, bigger chippers and chippers that are meant to remove stumps and trees. There are an array of blade shapes. These correspond to the sort of detritus they are best suited for. Be sure and review all safety notes before using your chipper. You may need to wear safety gear and feed your machine at a specific rate, keeping your area tidy as you go.
