Folks have asked about why two passes with the mower. I discovered last year that if one uses the two pass method with a leaf mulching mower, total time to mow a lawn and pick up leaves is greatly reduced.

Apparently leaves don't actually break down as well as one might like when they go into a mower's leaf bag on a first past. Thus I've actually found that for my yard I can get by with only 4 to 8 plastic lawn bags. Before I started the double pass method I would need to use 50 to 60 lawn bags. Stopping and filling up all those bags really slowed me down. It is much faster to use this double pass method.
