Im curious as to what all is generally involved in a spring clean up and how much one would charge to do so. I have a guy that wants me to quote him for a cleanup but i have no clue what to charge!

my spring clean up is just getting up all leaves (like the ones that fell down after fall clean up)
Getting all sticks up of the lawn and from in beds
pulling out any dead leaves/flowers
disposal of everything
That right there is a good $200-300

On earlier years its normally around 10th of april I believe but after today Im thinking maybe 2 weeks from now.
Suprised either way with how much snow pack we have had.

I'm not up north so my opinion might not matter, but down here we started already, about 2 weeks ago.

Cleanup is just that, cleanup. Why would you wait to do it? Your not landscapeing of fertilizing so you don't need to wait for the weather. Do everything but landscaping, fertilization, and pruning.
Charge your hourly rate plus any other fees.

Sounds good to me. I think im going to start out at 40$/hr to remove limbs and sticks, leaves, pull up big weeds from the flower bed and spray the small weeds. Ill even cut the grass to top off a freshly cleaned yard.

You got it right, leaves, limbs, sticks, keep an eye out for plow damage. In regards to mowing, i've found that people love to have the first stripes on the their block. $40 sounds about right. In NH i'm out there as soon as i'm comfortable with taking the sander out of the truck.

We got out about 2 weeks ago here cutting down pampas and other grasses. Last week just started mowing some that were shaggy or had leaves from over winter blow in. This week I'm just finishing mowing the ones that need it and starting round 1 of fert.

No tree limbs to clean up this year, we had a rough winter but no ice... Thank god...
