I don't know how big the area is your talking about but we use back blowers on 5 to 10k yards. Brings all debis to the top (kind of fluffs the grass up) and then bag the yard. Works great on curbs where sand is left from snow plow. I'll never rake a yard again.

I do the same thing. Personally, i think it's one of the best things you can do to a lawn in the Spring.

Blowers, rake and tarp. We blow leaves in to piles. Tarp them and haul them. You can also use your mower and split the yard with cutting directions going all one way.

If it is in the grass and is dry, mulch it with your mower. You can mulch it once and then suck it up with your bagger on if you have one. If not, just blow it into a pile and then tarp it away.
