I need some help learning more about leaf removal. This is my first season in business and I'm wondering how exactly is the best way to bid leaf removal. Should this be done as a one time removal? Should I be selling multiple visits? Outside of any disposal costs for leaf removal from property, should I be charging more for regular visits or one-time visits?

My current customers that I mow for are all interested in having me continue service to shred leaves come fall, but I'm planning on marketing to new customers and would like to know what is the best approach to take. I'm hoping that new business during the fall will turn into approximately 8-10% return for new mowing customers next spring, as well as 30% return for additional services. Can anybody give me some direction - servicing as many customers as possible quickly and professionally? :dizzy:

Thank you very much for your help! May the golden leaves turn to gold!
