    I need to do more Ornamental maintenance but I hate cleaning up the mess. Are the vacs the best method. I presently blow out the beds then suck up with my Walkers but it doesn't get everything.

    I bought a cheap ryobi blower vac combo for this. I still blow out all and mow up but then go by and suck out what I didn't get while blowing, keeps me from bending over and picking up. If you want a better brand stihl makes a nice one also. I just couldn't justify the 250 as aposed to 85. I just don't use it that much.
