    Some of my customers want me to do leaf clean up this year. Our town will collect at curb. on lawns where there will be a lot of leaves in back yards, i will have to blow on to tarp with my Giant Vac 8HP or back pack blower and drag to curb. What size tarp is being used, TX learned much on this site.

    As big as you can drag. Depends on how many people you have helping and how dry the leave are. You'll probably need to make a couple trips. Perhaps 8x10 or 12.

    I use a 10x14... then in a diamond pattern I grab the 2 sides then one end and drag it...the open end rarely spills on the way to the trailer but then I use my mower as a vac. to finish up
