View Full Version : How much extra for bagging?

10-17-2008, 05:30 PM
Hello all,

I was wondering what you guys charge for bagging. I have been telling my customers that I am gonna hold off until Oct 31 until bagging, but some yards are just accumulating leaves more than others, and I dont think I am gonna make it.
I was wondering what you guys do with this and how to go about it. Any advice is appreciated.

I charge them what I would charge for leaf removal. That is essentialy what you are doing. I started my leaf removal today. looks like the way the weather is, they well be coming down slow this year. Probably won't be finished for a month or so

for just leaf removal from turf, not bed or patios ect I charge double the lawn cutting rate for weekly leaf removal, and three times the rate for bi weekly leaaaf removal from turf only. All other fall / leaf clean-ups are priced by the hour. hope this helps you out.

Charge em...extra work requires extra cost....but you could always stick around and burn them for them..then no cost ...right???

extra time usually figures to be 10-15 bucks. probably should be more but figure they stick with me all year and when Im blowing dust around in the summer it all makes up for it

You might be able to squeak out another week or 2 by mulching the leaves.
