Run the mowers over it or not?

    Over the past few years, during the off season work such as leaves etc, I have always run my mowers over the grass regardless. Many lawn care businesses in my area simply blow the leaves, driveways, etc. and they are on to the next........For some reason it just looks "cleaner after a once over with the mowers, however, it does take more time. I ask if any of you do the same, because it doesn't seem that the owners of these properties the others are doing seem to mind the "dirty" look.

    We do the same as you. Always run the mower over it.

    I like to run the mowers over it also, I just think it looks better and cleans up the rest of the loose leaves.

    If you don't run over the leaves IT'S a chance you won't get called back

    That's when Walkers are nice! Sucks things up and the turf looks clean. :)

    Always run the lazer with UV over the yard...Picked up a couple of nice full maintenance accounts this year from one time fall clean ups. I just make it a point to stripe the hell out of em after we are done cleanin up all the leaves. Leaves them in awe...
