    With the mowers we use today why would you bag, when you can mulch. This question has been asked numerous times on previous threads, can we please stop beating this horse

    ,enough is enough .:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Well, I should have clarified my post to say "when I use catchers", which is actually only in the first and last few weeks of the season ...
    The rest of the time I let it fly ......

    I have this in my maintenance agreements: any bagged grass, leaves or debris will be left on the premisis at an area designated by the owner.
    That pretty much takes care of it. This way I don't have to haul it around all day and then dump it.:cool:

    approximately 90% of my lawns have a dump spot somewhere nearby ( close enough to drive the mower to). if we use the vac. on a lawn with no dump spot, we will throw the debris on a tarp and dump it at the next lawn that has one.

    It is nutrients created by itself. We mulch it back in.
