I figure I got to wait till Nov 12-15th and we should be able to start full time final clean ups on selective clients and by the 20th or so 80% will be ready. The mini clean ups end up costing us more than they are worth if the lawn looks good many can life with the beds being filled with leaves and say they are set for the year. Rather get the real deal where we average about 300 dollars per clean up and do 90-110 every year.
That's what I did last year, just one clean up, but I am a solo operation and I was dragging by the end of the year. This year I bought a 52" Walker GHS, a new back pack and made my leaf box taller. By just bagging the lawns every other week with the walker, I have increased the capacity I can put in the truck, thus decreasing the amount of times I have to dump. Plus when I do my final clean-up I will charge them the full amount I charged them last year.
