Anyone else have these tough ones that realy give you a work out. This one has a very steep hill that leads down to a golf course and some large tree beds and the only way out to the front is along the courses walk way that lead to an opening to the back yard. I blow them to the bottom bag em up with the ultra vav,dump on the large tarp and hook up and pull to the street.

For us that would be an easy one. This is one that we did in the spring, the company he had last year backed out, so we did a BIG spring clean-up. Fairly straight forward; back pack the upper beds to the driveway (maybe some tarping to get there) the lawn area and lower beds get thrown into garbage cans and carried to the driveway. From there we use a 4WD tractor w/ differential lock, weights, and front end loader to push the pile up the driveway to where the truckloader can get it. Little bit over a full load. The house nextdoor is easier, but I have some others that are nothing but garbage cans.

I can only dream of maintaining yards of that brobdingnagian size here in California. That property doesn't look too hard and I would probably blow all the debris down the slopes and stake down a tarp where I could blow and rake leaves onto. A billy goat leaf vac would be nice to have on jobs like that.

Not to sound picky but I don't think a waterfront home owner would want landscapers dumping a ton of leaves in their pristine, swimming area...what falls in naturally can't be helped but most want to keep their sandy beach and at least the first 15-20 feet of lake clear of debris...just sayin'
I know I wouldn't want them dumping in my waterfront property...

I am sure if they paid properly, they wouldn't have trouble finding someone to service their home. It's the house that is difficult and you have to put up with nit picky PITA, cheap, customers that have a hard time finding someone to service their home. :usflag:

I get paid well so it does not bother me. If a customer does not appreciate my hard work I just let them go.

If our clients caught us dumping leaves in the lake they would butcher the crew, before the DEP could get there to impose fines.

I like situations like that, on my own personal street is like that. I maintain 6 on my own street, I can just walk out my front door and be occupied all day.

Haha JK; I should have known that someone would think I was serious! I mean why dump them in the lake when you can have a nice bonfire?
