The Virtue Of Necessity?

Or is it the other way around?

More practically, is it really virtuous to clean the gutters when you have put it off so long they're full of mulch and maple sprouts? Srsly, full. I filled a standard garbage can with the stuff.

I think my gutters now feature a small city.

That should be some pretty rich mulch!

Why would you clean them before they are full? This way you get maximum junk for minimum effort. It's just more efficient. My gutters? Why are you asking about my gutters? Nothing wrong with my gutters. Look! A baby wolf!

I pay weak minds with strong backs to clean my gutters 2x per annum. Thus in my own small way I am creating jobs and placing currency in the flow of trade.

Perhaps the Øbama could take a lesson from me.

Nah.

Roseholme Grounds and Maintenance recently added a leaf blower to the inventory yes?

Get a length of PVC and a selection of fittings and assemble in such a way that a person on the ground can direct the stream of high velocity air into the trough of the gutters and blow the leaves and such clear.

Done regularly it keeps the compost from forming.
