    Leave them lay and they will break down on their own.

    Leave them alone...the mower will break them up and return to the soil.

    Break them up with a leaf rake and let them return to the topsoil. They are an excellent source of nitrogen after a short time like grass clippings. You can also put them in the compost pile if you wish.

    Leave the plugs ..... if the customer squawks, ask them if the realize how much soil you are taking away every time you aerate.

    That is all I do is aeration. Leave them lay. They are full of micro organizism that help decompose thatch.
