I did a shrub and hedge prunning today. I had piles of red tip, privet, huge hollys,and some kind of shrub with a thorn that will go through gloves. Before, I had always raked up the trimmings and placed them into a garbage bag lined trash barrell to dispose of them. This time though I left all the trimmings on the ground and got the mower down and started mulching. I mulched some privet trimmings that were a 1/4 on an inch in diameter,(had to pick up maybe a handful of these leftover) which was the toughest, but everything else just vanished. It was like having a hired helper, but I didn't have to pay. This was not a small job, and I likely will never bag another prunning job if I can blow the trimmings out to the yard where I can get the mower to them. You all may want to try this sometime if you haven't already, and if you have, why didn't you tell me about it already?
