how do you dispose of leaves?
Raked and bag or mulch with mower?

re: how do you dispose of leaves?
Usually just blow them into my neighbors’ yards. Or wait until they’re wet and burn them.

re: how do you dispose of leaves?
Mulched with mower, but I bag it to prevent excess thatch buildup

Mulch with mower as much I can. Burn as much as I can stand and pile the rest in a compost pile in my backyard

It’s nice up north most communities vacuum them up from the street/curb once a week.

I do this and then put the mulched leaves in landscape and vegetable garden beds for weed control and to overall improve the condition of the beds. Will confiscate neighbors raked and bagged leaves from the curb if I run short

Yard vacuum, mulches and bags then put them in the compost heap.

re: how do you dispose of leaves?
Back at my first house I bought there were some large trees on the property line in my neighbors yard. I'd mulch the leaves and use them in my garden by putting some in the compost pile and others used for ground cover to help with weed control.

Get those frickers down to the street with a rake/blower/tarp and the city comes to suck them up with a big vacuum truck on Monday morning.

I’m praying today was the last time for the season

I live in the country. 12 live oaks in the front yard and 30 pecan trees on back six acres. I let mother nature pretty much take care of mt leaves. Far to many to try to control.

Seeing neighbors bagging and putting on the street always disappoints me.
Such extra work and such a waste.
I just mulch mine

A little of everything. My yard gets a ton of leaves in the fall. I'll rake and bag the biggest collection areas, then blow some into a waste area in my backyard, then go over the yard with the mower and mulch the rest.

re: how do you dispose of leaves?
I don’t mess with them. My neighbor to my left doesn’t mess with his leaves. All the other neighbors rake them up. I do know neighbor to my left and I are the only ones who don’t have to water our yard during the summer and our grass always looks better than the other yards. All of us have about the same amount of shade and same kind of grass, mostly Bermuda and centipede. Although I did start getting some weeds this year, I’m gonna take care of that early next year.

Mulch with the mower as it is a great fertilizer.

Leaves don't contribute to thatch. Thatch is developed by the fibrous parts of turf grasses like stems and root/rhizome systems.

Study after study shows mulching grass clippings and leaves are not thatch issues.

I rake and bag most of it.

I find my yard stays wet if I dont and the dogs and kid track that crap in house.

Pile the leaves in the back of your truck and after dark take a drive on the interstate. Lots of fun and good for the environment!
