I charge $80/hr. The city picks up leaves here, but when they want them bagged it's an additional $1/bag.
I have yet to find the BEST way to do leaf jobs. If I get enough jobs I will probably purchase a used leaf vac I found for $800. I have a job coming up tomorrow that has a lot of roots & I don't know if I'm going to take the mower in there. Will be mostly blowing & raking
