    What do you all do after trimming bushes for clean up. do you put somthing around the tree catch the clippings? or do you just blow clipping out to lawn and mowthem up?

    It really depends on the circumstance. It takes a little common sense when dealing with this stuff but if the hedges have not been trimmed for a year, then you will either need a rake and a wheel barrow or some garbage bags to haul the leaves away. If they are maintained on a regular basis then you can just blow the leaves under the bushes and be done with it.

    There is not one simple answer to a question like this. When you roll up on the job, you may see that there is a walk way with an over grown viburnum that it makes sense to put a tarp on and drag away the clipping but then if the hedges are way out on the back of the property yet still way over grown but adjacent to woods, you can blow them all into the scrub brush.

    It all depends on the situation.

    Good luck.
