    I had a customer today that wanted leaves cleaned out of their natural areas. The problem was it was layered with pine straw. I think that we did a really good job with it but it probably took us a little longer than it should.

    Is there an easy way to clean leaves out of natural areas with mulch or leaves?

    Yeah, blower them and do so carefully. Takes practice but I can usually get them all out with only a slight loss of mulch... It's worse if they're wet or frozen.
