last year, in a previous thread, a mulching blade in a lawn mower was a

so, that leaves leaf blower/vaccuumn as the only option. some are

Can you borrow a power lawn mower. I just mow the lawn with a
regular blade. Mulching blade isn't needed. If there's a hole for
the clippings to come out , I tape a business-size, thicker than
average envelope over it .
When I do this, after the leaves have dried in the fall, they

It depends on how many leaves you have. I have lots of big oak trees.
I do the mower mulching in the beginning, when they are starting to come
down. And at the end, when they are just about done. But in the middle
period, when they are coming down the heaviest, there are just way too
many to be able to mulch them. The grass would be buried and die.
Here the township takes them from the street, so the front portion
I blow or drag using a tarp, into the street. The rest go into the
woods. I had one of the mulching gas powered blowers that I used
for the shrub bed areas. It was marginal at best. The bag just fills
up quickly. That and the clogs, etc. When it died I couldn't find
one that did the mulching, it wasn't that important to me, so I went
with a Sears regular gas blower.

I use 3 methods: Mulch the "few", mow the "more" with the bag on,
blow/rake the "big dumps". Based on the different types of trees and
varying weather conditions, there is no first-second-last to which
method I use. It all depends on what the lawn looks like on any
given day. 'Mow the "more" with the bag on' is the method that gets
used the most. Sometimes it's just one mower bag full, sometimes
I use a wheel garbage can which will fit 3-4 mower bags full.
I use the shop vac to do SWMBO gardens, under the deck stairs, behind
the AC, under the holly bushes, etc.
No town pick up where I live, but I live across the street from a wooded
hill (steep!) that goes down to a bay. Either the tarp full or the mower
bag full or the wheeled garbage can full goes over the hill.
Somebody threw a huge plastic bag of leaves down the hill last week. It
really bothered me to see it lying there and I knew it would never go
away, so I tied a rope around a tree and my waist and lowered myself down
the hill (steep!) to retrieve it. Pisses me off that somebody couldn't
take the time to dump the bag out instead of throwing it down the hill.
