Shrub trimming

I have a tarp with a slit cut to about center and i lay it under the shrub. When finished I carefully pull it toward me and dispose clippings in the truck. You really don't have to rake when finished.

I have tried everything, and I feel that nothing works 100%. I have tried tarps, blowers, rakes, you name it.

Hey michindi ,

I'm up here in Spring Hill FL. What I do up here is simply mulch up clippings. After a couple of passes I blow them into the grass and they disappear into the Floratam grass. A little more difficult in Bahia, but not impossible. I haven't went to the dump in over 12 years doing it this way.

Best way I've found.

Use a tarp like procedure as well. The slit down the middle makes it easy to get the entire ground covered, or at least as much as you will need.
