    Default Should I rake leaves or just run the ****ers over with the lawn tractor?

    I was wondering....

    I get a lot of ****ing leaves in my yard and I hate raking. What a chore, so I just mow 'em with the lawn tractor.

    Is that bad for my lawn? Will the mulched leaves ruin all my good crabgrass?

    **** it, I'll just blow 'em over to my neighbors yard. He's a dick anyway.

    Run them over with a tractor, leaves are good forms of compost, really good forms of compost. Good for your soil. Wouldn't make a difference for your grass and weeds either way, but it's a waste of time to rake

    I actually did that last year when my driveway froze over with 4" of ice.

    Couple gallons of kerosene and a half hour later it was clear.

    How to Rake Leaves
    Fall is a beautiful season, but the yard full of thick and sometimes wet leaves can be annoying and bad for the green grass coming next year. Raking has dual benefits. It's good for the grass and it's good physical exercise for us. All you need is a rake.

    You may be able to avoid raking altogether if you use a mulching mower. These power mowers run over the dry leaves and shred them into small pieces that sift down through the grass blades and onto the soil, where they will decompose, enriching your soil. During the rest of the year, the mower will mulch the grass it trims, also enriching the soil.

    We've got too many leaves? or is it leafs? Anyway, there's too many ****ing trees around to try and rake them up in the fall. There's a giant hill in my back yard that is pretty much all woods. So the ****ers just blow right back down into the yard. I wait til spring, rake them into big piles and run them bastards over with the mower. Then dump them into the woods across the street.

    I use the leaf vac/mulcher... Shred the buggers and blast 'em back onto the lawn to break down and feed the grass.

    I have a leaf blower but hate getting it out. It's actually an attachment for the bottom of my weed wacker. I have one of those weedwackers where you can take the bottoms off and put on about 6 different things. Just an extra step while cutti9ng the grass, so any grass clippings that fall on concrete, I just take the lawn mower and go over top of the concrete and it works as a leaf blower I'm sure my neighbors have looked at me a few times wondering why the hell I'm trying to cut the sidewalk

    I don't do anything with it... I let my fiance's boy do it for me....

    .... Seriously though, I'll either cut it up with the mower or just let the wind take them.... My leafblower is actually part of my shop-vac, and is electrical, and is a royal PITA....

    Here in Wyoming broadleaf trees are sparse. It's also very windy often, with sustained winds of 40 - 50 mph common. Gusts over 70 are not unusual. So raking is a moot point here in the high northern Rockies. Snowed already twice in the last week here.
