If it's a small property you have to be very mindful of the wind direction and how much throttle you give the blower. I try to avoid doing really small properties when it's windy. It helps if the leaves are damp, but I wouldn't go so far as to wet them or anything. It can help to grind the leaves up a bit before blowing them...reduces the surface area and their tendency to blow into neighbors yards.

As far as the shredder vac goes, I have the Echo equivalent, the ES-2500. I only use the vac part for final detail work such as corners, window wells and getting stubborn leaves out of shrubbery and ground cover. I would not recommend one as a primary cleanup tool...just too slow. The hand blower portion can be useful for small jobs too though.
