I feel your pain as I have a fairly wooded lot with fully grown Oaks and Maples. Mulching the leaves into the yard would leave a 4” thick layer over the lawn. It’s hard enough to grow grass in this much shade, I don’t need to smother the grass that I’ve been able to grow. I’ve tried a dozen different methods over the years and have finally settled on my current method. The first step is vigilance, the earlier in the leaf season and the more frequently you can work the yard the easier the task is each time. I blow everything into either the street or the driveway depending on the wind direction. Then I mulch mow them on the hard surface. I find it to be less stress on the mower, and me, and it allows for the leaves to be mulched much finer than if in the yard. I finish up with a push broom and snow shovel and get things bagged up. This gets me down to around six bags per session as opposed to 25+ if un-mulched.
