Leaf Blowing

Ok I am in Central Florida and I have almost no experience with leaf removal. Most properties here just don't have a problem with them. I just got my first LARGE account. It has a parking area the size of say a Large strip mall (maybe a big Home Depot complex). It is filled with leaves everywhere. They are caked in the corner with thick woods holding them in place. They obviously haven't been handled properly for some time. I only have several back pack blowers. How do I clean this up with out it taking a million years. The wind seems to change directions every minute. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Rent a walk behind blower.

I second the walkbehind blowers, or, failing that, a rental street sweeper.

Can you do it at night? chances are there will be less wind. This is how I did my commercial cleanups last year, there were too many cars around and I don't need to be shooting rocks @ their cars either.

But yes, get a walk behind machine and corral them into one corner and tarp 'em if you don't have a sucker.
