I charge by the hour and estimate hours (for non-contracted accounts); if they don't like leaves stuck under the bushes they know they will have to pay more. Very rarely does anyone get upset about a small amount left behind. Our blowers are too pretty strong and the only reason a rake comes off the truck for a leaf service is to help level out tall piles in the compost zone.
