I live in a 1943 farm house which is quite quaint. However, the home is surrounded by large pine trees which makes yard work anything but quaint. The rose beds especially are difficult to keep tidy. The needles shower over the house, onto the roof, which then fall into the beds and yard. I desparately need ideas on how to keep the yard/beds looking neater, without a weekly, major raking job. If there was at least some way of making the clean up easier that would be a blessing. I rent the home so cutting the trees back isn't going to happen. Our landlord also does not have the time to put into the trees due to running the farm. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
