Or they keep lowering their decks to mulch up leaves.
I did run across a service the other day who had their crew blowing the leaves into the driveway, then a crewmember would suck them up with a Billygoat. I gave em the thumbs up. Not hacks.
No per cut here! EOW on full time accounts. We blow the few few leaves into the grass and dust them with a pass of the mower. A few places are surrounded by oaks and make a bit of a mess. These folks get talked into a clean up after the majority are down. Regular service keeps too much from building up.
