leaves Summer, believe it or not is almost here, which means one thing. Get ready for Fall and leaves. The next few posts will give you some great ideas to save you time and head ache this fall season.

These extra heavy duty baskets from valpak are designed to keep the leaves where they are caught. Check them out at Swim Clear Pool Supply.com
