What do you do for a spring/fall clean up?

I'm just getting into the scene. I'm learning a lot already but what is there to do for a clean up besides picking up loose tree branches that fell, etc. Thanks.

Pick up leaves
pull back any dead plant material that wasn't removed in the fall
Turn mulch
do hand prunning on shrubs, pulling out dead material.
Pole prune up to 20 feet any trees. (try to do that late winter)

Clean out flower beds, remove sticks and leaves from lawn and do some light pruning if needed.

You can all so do De-thatching removing the dead yellow grass to help the new grass grow faster, Toro makes one for a 21" mower and walker makes one for the ride on. I use the Toro one on the new lawn boys just got to make it fit, it's easy Then you cut with a bag to collect the dead grass, you can also aeration, also fertilize,

What i do is first round do the detaching, 2nd round do the aeration, 3rd round put down spring fertilizer, then in May start my regular schedule,

I charge about 40.00 to 50.00 each thing so at the end of April that's about 120.00 to 150.00 per house
