I had a neighbor like that. He did really die of lung cancer. A bit OCD but he was a nice guy.

Now many landscapers are using the walk behind leaf blowers along with several of the backpack blowers. The noise is intense!

How many of these illegal immigrant leaf blower services actually do anything besides blow leaves into the street and take 6 hours to mow half an acre of stunted grass? If so, I'll go around to my neighbors and do all this in 1/10th the time with less noise and grief and for less money.



I ask because I rent a house and my landlord is paying this group of weapons-grade idiots to do just that. No leaf removal, the guy blows it all into a pile in the back yard that has been seemingly growing for years into a massive debris pile. AND THEN! They notice some leaves blew off the pile, so OUT COME THE BACKPACKS AGAIN to move them around some more. They're making BS work for themselves to keep busy. I would rather do it myself and save myself the irritation of these guys coming by and wrecking my ear drums and giving me lung cancer. Raking and bagging, and mowing with a manual cutter, is all the property needs. I'm at the point now where when it is dead silent, I still hear the sound of those leaf blowers ringing in my ears.

Lazy politicians too good to do any of this type of work themselves will never stand behind any noise ordinance against these things.

At least those illegals blow it into a pile.

My neighbors' illegals blows it into my yard since I'm the only house of the street that doesn't use them.

Where's ICE when you need em.
