not a garden question...but! Is it best just to mow over them, or rake them up? Our neighbor has a tree that coats our front yard with them?

thanks

I normally just mow over them, but they are so thick, I have raked and bagged them up a few times... like today

If you want your grass to grow good, you need to rake them up and get rid of them. They are very acidic. They do make great mulch for blueberries.

They make great bedding for azaleas.
