Just so you know, what looks like horrible tire tracks on the lawn - it's actually piping that the city placed down for a good 2 months. It sat there and killed the turf beneath it, NOT ME! lol




Just realized I put the same pic twice, missing one... dammit...

Nice work Scott.

LOL when you pointed out those lines in the lawn, I was thinking you might have started a new late payment policy where late payers, get donuts made on their front lawn with your mower tires .

Cool. I did my first leaf cleanups yesterday, and as mentioned in another thread, I forgot to take pics. Can you believe it - Hedgemaster with no pics to post? LOL

I had a pile like that one shown yesterday and there was too much volume to blow it all to the curb from the back yard so I raked the pile onto a big tarp and dragged the leaves out front in three trips, dumping them on the street.

Hey, when you say "pick up", what exactly do you mean? Pick up by hand/rake? Pick up with mower/bagger?

Well I mulch the leaves with the tractor at 4-4.5" without the bagger.

Then I mulch again at 3.5" without the bagger.

Then I pickup the leaves with the tractor + bagger at 3".

I also may cut the entire lawn afterwards at 3" or 2.5", just to give it a neater look. Mulching/picking up leaves with the tractor can get messy as their is no proper pattern to follow, so it's best to cut the entire lawn properly right at the end.

TAKE PICS!!!

What do you feel is the benefit of that multi step process? Why not just use the bagger the first time?

Mulching it the first time has many benefits...

1. The leaves become more compact for bagging, so you save quite a lot of space, and bags.

2. You prevent the chute from clogging.

Everyone does things differently, however if that was a large parcel, like an acre, you would be there all day doing all of that work.

By your photos, I would have that area cleaned out and mowed in 1 hour.
