    Hi everyone, looking at bidding on business and I am wondering what you guys do. The business has a large front lawn and then small strips of lawns approx. 16" -20" in width around the building. Do you use a 21" and bag the grass as not to get the clippings all over the sidewalk and in the beds? Do you just blow them off? Thanks

    There comes a time in certain situations that bagging is just more practicle to do than not bagging. Many times, small islands in parking lots can be the same way.

    In that situation I would just bag it and be done.

    Bag it you'll save more time than blowing it from one side to the other.

    Not to mention, blowing out flower beds suck, because you never really get all the grass out and then it starts building up and looking crappy.
