I've found that running the lawn mower over the hedge trimmings is a useful way of dealing with them: it chops them up and vastly reduces their bulk; it makes them much easier to compost; it saves putting down a cloth to catch them, or raking/ brushing them up.
If the neighbours catch you 'mowing' the footpath and wonder if you are right in the head you can always get down on all fours and talk to the mower, see if its tired, or something. Then they will know!

Just make sure the Trimmings are not on a Pebbled Driveway....otherwise you will be replacing a lot of Glass Panes..

Well I thought you might have showed a bit of passion for your adopted county.

Pane refers to one...Panes refers to several....But I presume it would be a "Pain" to break a "Pane"...
