    In you guy's opinion what is the best way you trim and clean up shrub and trimming in beds? Just asking.

    I like the guy that said he saw two Mexicans (no racial slur intended) hand holding a push mower to trim shrubs. Still laughing about that one.

    Laying out tarps beforehand makes clean-up a breeze.

    I blow them out w/ the blower, then either bag them w/ the mower or rake them up. If there is a ton, I use my old chipper to shred it all up some more.

    I would rather rake up the cuttings than use a tarp. Then I use a hand held gas powered leaf/bush cuttings shreader to suck up what still is on the ground. Make sure you buy one with metal blades for shredding (i.e. Stihl).
