I agree to that pact Homer. There's just no way to estimate leaf cleanup jobs. Sometimes you can be an hour or more off if you try it. Leaves drift like snow and can fool you. The yard may look shallow with them. Then you start blowing away from the house and under trees then all of a sudden you have a ton. Then sometimes those leaves underneath may be wet and compacted. Taking more time to blow. A lot of limbs maybe hid in the leaves that you have to pic up. There maybe big areas where you can't put a mower on. Like rocky areas you have to blow. Customer will try to add extras into the job. Because their idea of finished is different from yours. These are some of the reason I have always stuck to a hourly rate on leaves. And too you can end up stressed out like Homer if you bid low. Homer I believe this is a budlight night for you
