    what ways do you guys clean up the mess after trimming shrubs? (ie, just rakes,rakes and blowers, trac-vac with longer pipe???) I'm thinking along the lines of doing this in multched beds, etc.
  2. put down tarps before you trim

    Echo makes a shred n vac model ES-230 that will clean up most fo the debris that you will be dealing with and shred it into very small confetti...

    I have found that this saves me a ton of time doing hedges...give it a try

    I sometimes use tarps, if accesible, sonmetimes it hard to get tarps in between shrubs. I blow the clippings out of the beds and into the lawn and mulch 'em with the mower. I trim the shrubs before I mow, blow em out, then proceed to mowing. Mulch it into the turf (UNLESS they're diseased).
