Unfortunately I’m surrounded by neighbors that have at least one pine tree near the property line. For me this means there are dead pine needles constantly falling on the ornamental rock I have. In the past I’ve hauled out the electric leaf blower to take care of this.
This time I was feeling somewhat lazy. I grabbed an old push broom, and was able to lightly sweep the pine needles into clumps. Pine needles seem to want to clump together on their own making the clean up pretty easy. Once that was done it was simple to pick them up by hand and dust bin.
