Guys, I have a man who wants the sweet gum balls in his backyard removed. Anyone have any experience with these? Best to rake 'em, blow 'em or mow over 'em first? I know this is wide open for jokes so if you must...go ahead! LOL
Thanks. I was wondering about mowing since it makes sense if the grass is shorter, they'd be easier to blow onto a tarp. Never really dealt with 'em before other than stepping on 'em when I'm barefooted. Ouch!
i have lots more experience with sweet gum balls than i'd like to have...the problem is a blower just pushes them further downinto the turf alot of times...if its not too big an area i suggest raking (ugh) if its big just use a blower (a strong one), and do the best you can...no way to do it with a mower though.
