removing saw dust
 
Last week we had our cherry tree cut down by an arborist and there's saw dust from the chainsaw all over the yard. It rained a couple of times since then so now its also wet. What's the best way to remove it?

rake it up?
...if you're really obsessive get out the shop vac

Unless it's piled up and might kill the grass under it, leave it. It'll decompose and work its way down into the soil.

When I worked for a tree company many years ago,I had a customer ask if we were not going to vacuum the saw dust from a removal.

Ahh, no mam we are not.:no:

Ahh grasshopper, you need to learn the Tao of Landscape Management - all plants that rise from the Earth will return to the Earth in time. :)

Namaste!

LMAO!!! I was going to break out the shop vac, but I thought I would look like a newbie in front of the neighbors.

I'll just rake it up I guess

Or you could just leave them right where they are, and test your patience and inner strength. Really, it will be OK. :thumbup:

Lol! I don't have any patience. I've been waiting for months to try my hand at this landscaping thing... unless there's a cool decorative or re-purpose thing I can do with it?

Rake it into a flower bed and let it rot there.
