Chutzie, we have a hand held blower that is also a vacuum and it mulches the leaves as it picks them up and then you just empty the bag. It's gas powered and has a strap to put on your shoulder to carry it.
Our trees around the house are still quite small but we get leaves from other people but the way the wind blows here if you wait long enough they will keep on blowing.
luv and hugs
