it might cost you some, 95% of my customers want me to do a fall clean up. and the ones that don't and do it themselves eventually come around. I almost force them into it due to the way I break down the cost of the clean up into each mowing starting in october. some are cheap and will just pay me to bag the leaves on the lawn and call that good, but only 1 or 2. eventually those customers will get dropped if they don't comply. same with bi-weekly customers either they get on the fertilizer bandwagon and have a nice lawn or get off my mowing route. I hate cutting dust bowls with almost no lawn.
