Distasteful aspects of lawn care.

While almost everything in yard care, even fall leaf clean up, I find very satisfying, one thing comes to mind that is a real fly in the ointment.

Poplar tree fuzz. My yard is bordered by a dozen Poplars, each at least 24 inches in diameter. From June 1 to June 30 each year, they put out tons of fuzz that drifts like snow in every corner of the yard, drive, and even into the garage. On calm days, my yard looks to be covered by snow and it takes daily vacuum cleaning of the outdoor AC unit, as well as tractor air cleaner...cleaning. If they didn't contribute significant value to the yard, and provide almost full shade, they'd have come down years ago.

This is the only thing I can think of that is distasteful in my yard care work. Anyone have other pet peeves you'd like to off load?
