    Here in New Jersey all the condos, malls, small shops and most houses that have lawn services bag the grass. In what other States is bagging popular.

    Its only popular here in Wisconsin at certain times of the year and on certain properties.

    Most customers want a nice looking lawn, if you can provide that then you don't have to bag. I cannot believe some of the work people do with the windrows of grass all over.
    I myself bag 2 of 24 customers on a weekly basis. One has a swimming pool and the other has an on site compost pile. I run a Walker as primary mower and have a 52SD deck as my main cutter.

    There are lots of homeowners who bag themselves and bring the grass to the cities compost site.

    We only bag in the early spring and late fall when there is a lot of growth or leaves to pick up. The rest of the year we mulch just fine. In NC a lot of people do it this way.

    Bagging is still prefered in California from my expierence. I believe it's mostly due to the fact most lawns are fairly small and most counties provide green waste recycling cans to homeowners.

    Baggin' Pete?...

    ...run doubles and/or cut twice and you will substantially eliminate the need/amount of bagging the clippings. Email me and I will tell how to get around most of this.

    The ones bagging are using Walkers. Mulching is mostly eXmarks, and everything else is usually sidedischarging. As for me, I don't bag grass.
