Looks more like a good example of why NOT to mulch to me.

And barely any leaves. Warm, dry and ideal conditions don't go hand in hand with most any large leaf cleanup I've done or seen.

I mulch on ALL my properties and the customers are ALWAYS exremely impressed and happy. One property has 6 mature white oaks and well over 25 hickory trees of various sizes. (Spread over 2 acreas.) I use a toro diesel 60" with Mamba mulch blades and the toro mulch kit and set height between 3.25 to 4" depending on conditions. Two passes and voila- no more leaves. It works fantastic. Different strokes for different folks. if bagging works for you great...I mulch and the leaves are invisible. Me and customer:

The average clean up around here is about 25 cubic yards of leaves.





Id mulch those in a heartbeat and it'd look fantastic.....

Pretty sure anybody that's done leaf clean-ups mulches when possible, and a tiny mound of leaves like that is easily mulched, especially in warm, dry conditions. People in my area wouldn't even pay to do a clean up that small. They'd rake them up themselves.

You've obviously never done large leaf clean ups in wet conditions or youd know its not possible, much less cost and time effective to try to mulch them all.
