    start furthest from the truck. Work the perimeter first and blow leaves until they stop blowing easily. Tarp the majority of these leaves to the truck. Repeat until all the leaves are gone. If you have a leaf plow then you can use that instead of tarps. I don't always like the leaf plow becuase it packs them in and alot of times makes it more difficult raking them into the leaf loader. If you have alot of acorns and other crap in the grass a push blower with a backpack blower working in tandem works well for me.

    i start at the flower beds and blow into the lawn and then use mower to vac up the leaves. If theres large piles then just bag them. Mowers with mulching blades work well1 hope this helps

    Whats a leave clean-up?
    I do leaf clean-ups.
    Blow the beds, one way or another get the LEAVES to your truck or into the woods, mow up the remander of LEAVES and then LEAVE.
    LEAVE the tarp at home.
    Tarps are for homeowners.
