Need Some Help

Hey guys, I'm looking to start doing leaf clean up and stuff like that because I can't get a job and I enjoy doing landscaping and stuff and plan on taking it on through the year so I figured I could start with this get clients and stuff for spring and so on. I'm 17 years old 18 in about a month I'm wondering how you do leaf clean ups my way has always been go get a rake and trash bag but I'm looking for a kinda quicker way so I can get more jobs in. I leave school at 12 everyday only ave 2 classes so I'm looking to get a job or 2 or more in one day if anyone can help Id appreciate it a lot.

Thanks
Chris

when you turn 18 yer suppose ta smoke'em. No seriously....go to school after school and learn about computers or some crap. Trust me....your back will be screwed up by the time your 22. If you must....search past posts, lots of old info if you look.

attaboy... Really it is tough to know how to advise without knowing your entire story, equipment, etc. Use the search feature in the green bar above. Use you noodle and manage " energy" to your best ability.

Blow to a pile and rake the pile onto the tarps. Different sizes of tarps, for carrying or dragging off the lawns.
Then, Do some research on mulching.

I had just come across a U. study that says mulch the leaves into the lawn and by spring they will be gone. But that is up here and the mulch is under snow for several months.

Find out if something similar is possible in GA.
