Newcomer here, with a question regarding leaf removal from St. Augustine grass.
We have 6 large Live Oaks here in our yard, which in about 3 months will start dropping barrels of leaves. And I mean barrels....typically, I rake 60+ large garbage cans full of oak leaves every fall. On the one hand, it's great exercise but on the other hand it's a lot of work.
I've been toying with the idea of a nice pull-behind sweeper but am concerned that with the nature of St. Augustine grass and the way the dead leaves tend to get buried down in it, that it may be a waste of money.
Can anyone report on any success, or lack of, with a pull-behind sweeper in this southern turf grass?
Thanks for any advice!
