I had mainly sycamore at my house round the corner - made great leaf mould.
I found the black bags with holes much quicker than the wire container. The container dries out more than bags do. I started with a container, but as the tree got bigger, I needed another one. Not having time to make it, I used bags one year, rather than letting the leaves go to waste. They were rotted really well after a year, while the others were still a bit hit and miss.
If you can just run your mower over them roughly, then gather them back up , they'll rot quicker Marc. That might be better for you if you don't have lots of room.
