Do you rake them, or let them blow into the neighbors yard?
Mulch em' up with the mower.
Mulch them up and put in my compost bin. Save the rest in bags just for my garden.
I have no control over my leaves anymore than my neighbors have control over theirs. We each rake/mow/vacuum our respective lawns and don't complain about it.
I let them blow into my neighbors yard who lives North of me to make room for the neighbors leaves who live South of me that in turn blow into my yard.
I have had my yard raked nice and clean before to only have it filled up again from my other neighbors--I gave up on this sometime ago.
Leave them as they fall and then mulch them up with the mover.
Can you light the leaves on fire while they are still on the tree without killing the tree?
(getting really really tired of raking, blowing, mulching leaves)
My leaves blow into my neighbor's yard downwind and my neighbor's leaves from upwind blow into mine, we all take care of whatever leaves happen to be in our yard and don't worry about whose leaves they are. I pay the neighborhood kids to do it, a band of them will get together and go up and down the whole street and do everyone's yard. They make good money for a group of 10-12 year old kids. Sometimes I'll "rent" them my mower to use on other yards in in exchange for doing my yard.
just mow what is on your property.
Don't laugh, you might be my neighbor
Let them lay exactly where they fall and mulch up whatever happens to be left in the yard during the next time I mow.
IMHO, trying to keep your yard leaf free is a never ending battle which one will never win.
I pick up leaves and pine straw with riding mower/grass catcher.
I have a 65CC Stihl backpack blower. One neighbor is a bit too green, I wait for her to go walk her dog in the AM, then I shepherd all the detritus from the front yard into the sewerage drain that we share. It has yet to fail from this in eight years of said practice. I blow the stuff from the back yard into the back yard woods.
Rake them into a huge pile and when the wind is just right, set it on fire and watch the smoke billow into my neighbor's property.
It's a win-win really.
That's why I live out in the country on 20 heavily wooded acres; let the leaves lay where they like; in the spring mulch 'em up with the mower.
Nothing, I just leave them there.
Ahhhhhh Florida... I haven't raked leaves in 25 years!!
I mow periodically and mulch them into the lawn. I also rake some into the compost bin.
I admit I was once dumb enough just to burn them up when I was a dumbass pyro of 12 years old.
Leaves are leaves, and a source of nutrients and organic material for the ground. It pisses me off when I see people bag their leaves and throw them out with the garbage.
It also annoys me when I see people burning leaves.
And running a leaf blower 3 times a day every day for 2+ months is pretty asinine too.
Then there is this guy that actually rakes the leaves up from the woods around his lawn. They're kind of important in the woods.
