Just blowing leaves into the woods (more than a modest amount or way into a real forest) sounds like a good way to guarantee continued business, as many will just blow back in! It can also be pretty time consuming, and pretty frustrating if there's any kind of wind at all. On most properties I'd have to either mulch or bag them. I'm just glad I can mulch em. I had a daunting batch at one really tough 1/4 acre lot last week, the kind of place full of leaf traps everywhere and with neighboring homes so close you couldn't just blow them anywhere but into the lawn. There were so many in the beds under some trees I was having to wade through them to spread them out enough for my bp blower to handle. After I blew the beds out I had a waist high mess in spots Even the PB 750 wouldn't move them any further, so I ran the lazer through them a few times blades off to spread the piles into the lawn, then turned the blades on and mulched them up, reversing when they got piled up in front, and was really amazed that they were reduced to powder in a few passes (1st pass at transport height, then lower height as the leaves got small enough not to ride up over the deck). I then blew the remaining fragments to disperse them and yes, you could tell there had been leaves there if you looked for them, but from the windows of the house or any angle besides right above them it looked pretty darn close to vac'd. And with more leaves left on trees it wouldnt make sense to do another pass with a 2nd mower to vac them up. I kept thinking while doing it that I really owed the engineers at Exmark a thanks for actually spending time on their mowers' mulching ability. This was much bigger volume mulching than I ever try to do on purpose, but it had been 9 days a lot of leaves leaves fell. I didn't have a bagging mower with me so it was good the Exmark did its thing so well. The best/worst thing is, it took just 50 min longer than a simple mowing, and the vast majority of that was dealing with the nooks and crannies and getting them out from some dense shrubs and other plantings. Another similar (probably easier) round in December and they're done for the year. That's $100 to get all the leaves cleaned up. I'm probably leaving money on the table doing it this way, but customers seem to really like the value and since I hate walking around blowing leaves or tarping them I'm fine with it. It has taken years to perfect the technique and realize what works and when, but I would suggest that you not get wedded to any single technique. I did my 2 acre home lot in 3 hours, (not all of it, just the landscaped areas) , and due to having more room to spread the leaves over, it looked vac'd. Of course 2 days later after wind and rain it's got a nice even coverage of leaves on it again. But I'd be sick if I bagged that many leaves and it was a mess again in 2 days. And btw, my hourly rate for this is $60. It should probably be higher but past a point people are going to balk as I do reveal that rate to them up front.
