Good purchase for winter but great for fall leaves too.
Wasn't sure i'd like it, plus a bit expensive for the small size. well, i was wrong. it's awesome. as stated in so many other reviews it's a magnet for dirt and water- it hasn't snowed yet but i am sure it is going to be effective. looks good, seems durable. glad i bought it. not too expensive considering the quality. update: almost one year later, and it still looks great and still works great. i left it in place year-round! i still like it.
