I have always mulched and shot leaves into the woods on my yards with the woods, and put them on a tarp on those yards without. But do you all find it easier/quicker to use tarps and maybe get an extra helper, or to buy the vac? I'm debating on buying one, but I didn't know if it was save me time. I have to rake/blow the leaves up on the yards with a lot of trees in or to get the sticks up anyways, so I'm just curious if traditional/cheap way is better or not. Any opinions?
