    Little tip 17th Jun 17 at 3:28 PM
    You may do this already, but if not I did this today and it was a revelation.

    I was attending to our front garden and needed to trim back a few bushes. This generally makes a hell of mess which has to be cleared up. What I did was, get an old duvet cover and spread it round the bush to be trimmed. Most of the leaves and twigs fell onto the cover and because it was flexible, after I'd trimmed that area I just gently pulled the cover away and flipped the sides over then rolled it up with all the clippings inside and emptied it into the bin we have for garden waste.

    This saved so much time and effort.

    My method is trim hedges/shrubs, blow everything onto the lawn then cut the grass. All done.
