A well-kept garden commands a beautiful appearance. However, debris and leaves in your garden make it less appealing. Raking is a good way to remove the leaves but in a small-sized garden. A faster and efficient alternative to removing such debris is to use a leaf blower. Moreover, the blower will improve the mulching quality
How to test the noise
The quieter the blower the better it is. Some blowers produce the deafening whining sound! To detect a quieter Leaf blower, check for the ANSI (American national standard institute) noise rating. A rating of about 65DB or 70DB is considered less noisy. The quietest leaf blower should be exceptionally quiet from a distance of 50 feet. The lower the decibel rating the quieter the blower is.
