Tip: Yard debris pickup

My neighbor has an old ugly bedspread that he hauls out every time he's pruning bushes or raking leaves. I always tease him about using it but I have to admit it makes an easy job of it. It's lightweight and he can drag it around the yard so it's easy to move and shake out when the work is done.
