It's been raining heavily here. The tree that is behind my house has grown so that about 5% of its top is over the roof. So there are loads of fallen leaves on my roof.
The problem arises when the water slides through the grid on my gutter, to the downspout. It brings the leaves with it, which accumulate over the grid, and after some time the grid is completely blocked, and won't allow any water to pass through it. I have to manually clean them out to allow water to flow.
Cutting down the tree isn't a good option right now, as I am on a rather busy schedule. I could manage that but I was wondering if there could be any other solution to this.
How can I prevent the leaves from accumulating on the gutter guard?
