During a job today, another company's crew was next door. They finished there job before us and had blown a number of leaves into the street in front of our job site. This was not a problem to us since there were many leaves on our site against the curb before we arrived (in fact all the houses had leaves against the curb). When we blew the leaves from the curb into the street as well as some leaves from the drive way (by the way the lawn was covered with leaves to begin with) we noticed that there were just to many leaves in the street in front of this house. So we did the best the we could by using the blower to put most of the leaves in a line and then have run the mower over them to bag them up. During this process a neighbor came out and was outraged by the number of leaves in the street and was complaining that the wind will blow them into her yard. My question is how does everyone handle the leaves on the street and the yard? As for the neighbor she told us, as we were trying to clean up the leaves that she was going to tell our client. Well she did and both of them came out. I tryed to tell our client that we were not finished with the job and she understood. Later she told me that the neighbor was very unpleasant prior to this and had left notes about her leaves blowing from our clients yard to hers. The job itself took 2 HRS because we bagged the leaves with the mower.
