Question for you Leaf Clean up Guys

ok, here in west texas we dont have the volume of leaves that most of you are dealing with in the fall. I do have one customer though, that has many mature trees in her yard that are Pecans, and Oaks. Because she is a weekly customer, im still mowing her yard, and mulching the leaves so they arent building up too bad.

My question is this: she has some flowerbeds that are full of viney ground cover like english ivy, and vinca. She wants all the leaves blown out or removed from those beds when I mow also. No big deal, because she is my best paying customer, and I dont mind providing that extra service for her.

My question is this: Will I backpack blower do the job? Ive been contemplating getting a BR600 for a while now. Or am i better off getting one of those cheap poulan pro blowers that can also be a lawn vac? Ive used those as a leaf vac before, and the bag over the shoulder is always a PITA.

Any recommendations? My thought was to blow the leaves into the yard with a back pack blower first, then mower as normal. Id like to hear what yall have to say. Keep this in mind though....the leaves are a thorn in her side. She enjoys her manicured yard all season, but really hates leaves left behind..LOL.
