    do you mean really get rid of them, or make it look like they are gone and accelerate the rotting process.

    If you mean #1 then a mower won't do you much good without a vac system.

    If you mean #2 then get som Meg-mo blades and mulch them up 2-4 times and let nature do its thing or bag them the last time you mow them. or simulate meg mows with gators over hi lifts or soe other type of doubles

    Backing over a condensed row will shred them quite well. Work them to the center, grind them, then spread them back over the lawn.
