We just picked up an account that had been marginally maintained by the previous lco. Branches up to 3/4" in diameter embedded in the turf---so many I had a wheelbarrow full ---had to pick them out of the grass as I was blowing the leaves out. My question to you: If you have branches that shed from the tree during the mowing season and in the fall (as they typically do at this time of the year) do you just continue to mow over them or do you do a walk-through before you cut and during mowing, stop while you are cutting for the bigger ones, move them, then pick them up before you leave the premises. Seems to me the right way to maintain a lawn is to pick up the sticks and branches, not hit them and chop them up into smaller pieces to be ground into the soil. Share your thoughts.
