How To Do A Proper Spring Cleanup?

I live in Canada, and when the snow melts its a great time to make some money with one-time visit Spring Cleaning.

Last year was my first year. I offered a service where i would Power Rake, then hand rake and bag, and then Aerate. Typically $100 per house.

This year i want to add "First cut/Trim", "Edging", "Bush/Bed/Driveway Blowing". What order should these be done in? and should i add anything?
My Assumed order would be:
  • Power Rake
  • Blow, Handrake, and Bag
  • First Cut and Trim
  • Edging
  • Aerate

Spring clean ups are gonna vary from 1 customer to the next. One customer might just want leaf clean up, another might want leaves cleaned up, flower beds cleaned, bushes trimmed, dethatching and an0ther might want something else. Best thing to do is create a good spring clean up plan and try to sell it. Most people will most likely pick and choose what services they want to add or subtract.
why i like cutting lawns so much:

It's the only job i know,
Where i can walk in circles and talk to myself
And no one thinks i'm crazy.
