Finding lawn care distasteful in almost all its forms, I spend most of my time plotting ways to get out of tasks like cleaning gutters — one such method would be the LeafGuard system. This gutter cover lets water in but keeps most leaves and debris out.
The cover extends over the gutter but keeps a slot open for water to drain into. It keeps crap out of the gutter and lets it blow harmlessly onto the ground, while keeping the rest of the system clear to do its job of funneling water away from the house.
We can see a few perks — like I don’t have to clean the gutters anymore — but we’re aware that this system might not work for everyone. Folks up north in particular might be at a disadvantage if ice built up on top of the cover.
What do you think? Is this the answer to the weekend lawn-care blues, or an expensive way to cause you more hassle down the road? Let us know in comments.
