Do any of you advertise leaf clean ups to blow the leaves into the woods if a house has woods. I was thinking of doing that since then i could rent a wb blower and i have a big redmax. I figured that way there i can get the jobs done quick since i am still in school all day. Just wondering if that was a good idea.

i don't do that, i pick up and haul away leaves.

my thought is that if you can blow them into the woods the wind can blow them back into the lawns,

It would depend. If the customer is okay with it, I don't see why not, just make sure to blow the leaves far enough back in the woods that they aren't noticeable and so they aren't all in a giant pile. Otherwise you will just have to haul away the leaves.

your ?? no i don't advertise to blow leaves into the woods, if you do advertise that way you are advertise for one way, advertise that you treat every property individually according to what it needs, maybe i'm not saying that right, but i treat every property as an individual and they are all different and every one has a different way of cleaning them out and what will work best. hopefully that makes sense???

if the customer doesnt mind and they have a suitable area for that, i dont see a problem.

Yeah, as long as it looks natural and the customer doesn't mind, I don't guss there would be a problem. Theres going to be leaves in the woods anyway so I don't think that having any more would hurt.

If there's woods behind the house I ask if it's ok to move the leaves there. I always say "if I take them away it will cost a lot more..." They always say sure...woods are fine. Again, when placing them in the woods try to avoid the "big pile" look...blend them in with the surroundings.

I always haul the leaves away. I'll shred them up on site and haul away the dust. Don't really have any places around here that have a wooded area close to their lawn.

We do a lot of leaves and blow into the woods as much as possible. We always disperse the leaves 15-20' back so there isn't a leaf "burm" along the edge. If the custmer has a lot of leaves, we blow them back to the wood line, mulch them down, then blow them into the woods. The customer usually doesn't even notice. The leaves don't blow back.

I would not advertise that about blowing the leaves in the woods. Every yard is different.
I have some customers who like to use them as mulch. As leaf mulch is the best. (shredded)
