Leaf Grinding

Here is one I did today . 1.5 hrs 3 bags left at curb. Grinding leaves is the only way to go for me. I like the way it makes the neighbors envious when they look out the window and see me working

blew out the beds first . then I made a circle around the yardseveral times with the chute open blowing the leaves into the center to make smaller area to mulch. then 3 passes over the leaves with the wb with the mulch kit and anti blowlout baffle. I put the grass gobbler on and made a pass over the lawn to pick up small pieces of leaves. Emptied the gobbler 3 times.

Looks good. Why not just mulch though? Could reduce the meager 3 bags into none!

It looks good but over time the lawn will become thinner. Also If you do it that way, there is nothing to haul away, which is great.

But Some customers request that we dont do it that way. The particles are hard to get out of the ground after they are so small.

the bagger for the last pass gives it the hoover vacuum treatment that customers want. I do mulch only on the previous vistis but the final cleanup gets the bagger and blow out the beds. i realize some people have bought expensive equipment and want to find fault with grinding leaves but its just not true. Can you say decomposition
