    Lay tarp down before you start grab tarp before you leave.

    What kind of question is that?! You pick up the mess you made, including the leaves. Do what Lawnzzz said or if you mow them too, blow the leaves into the yard and mow them up.

    JBell I'm assuming most of your bushes are mulched with pinestraw. If they are just rake the pinestraw out about 2 feet from the shrub. Trim shrub. Put the pinestraw back.

    Do the same thing then. Pull the mulch back a few feet. Trim shrubs. Pick up the larger stuff. Put mulch back.

    I handle all bush trimming jobs this way...

    I blow all clippings into yard...and mulch over them till there are no more leaves...then pick up any big branches left.

    I can think of no easier way.

    I pick up all the big stuff and mulch the rest with the mower.
