    Hey guys I'm new to the site (which is great btw) I have been mowing lawns, and doing general landscaping for a company for the past year here in Buffalo. This summer I picked up a Red Max blower and a Kawasaki weed wacker, slowly trying to get some equipment of my own. Also I have a toro push mower.

    I've decided to start passing out fliers for fall clean ups, however I have never done one haha. What would be the best way to do this? Also here in buffalo we can put the leaves in the street and the town comes and picks them up.

    Would the best way just to blow them into a pile and mow them up with a bag on my mower? Or just blow them into little piles and bag em (if the customer wants that).

    I appreciate any info on this.

    blow them into the street, and then run over the grass with the mower to get stragglers.....

    Agreed! That is probably the easiest, fastest, and cheapest way to do it.
