Mulch, blow, rake, or mow them off?

I mow mine clockwise in a circle then come back mowing them toward my neighbors yard. I let the leaves in my beds compost.

Someone posted up a light heardted thread similar to this several years ago. He included photo of his beautiful children playing in the leaves. Reminded me of a Normal Rockwell painting such as this.

I always take the leaves in a huge pile for my nieces and nephew to jump in, then sometimes I'll throw some small logs on the middle, light the pile on fire, wait for the logs to start burning then make S'mores.

We don't have an Autumn here. Would be cool I guess, if we had an Autumn.

I used to have to mow around 70+ post oak trees on my 36000 sq. ft. lawn of St. Augustine grass and get rid of the leaves every year. I waited till late January and then I would mulch the leaves till they virtually disappeared. Then I took my riding mower with a 3 bag system and sucked them all up and put behind my barn. By the time I had to do it the following year they had broke down to about 25% of what they were. I had a total of 5 acres and also had to get rid of all of the leave that collected around my shop. other barn and leaves that collected along all of the fence around the house.

I also turned off my sprinklers for the winter, to give my grass and bedding plants a chance to go to sleep for the winter.

Blow and mulch. I blow them into an area and then go over them with my riding mower with a mulching kit. Bagging is for the birds.
