My favorite jobs are when I pull up and see a 300' long pile waist high needing pushed and see an area being prepped that I realize they could had bagged with the mower and saved time. Some of my jobs we hit 2 times a week

No "special" leaves. Just more of them, wet, icy, etc... I'm sure every company in the northeast would love for you to show us how to mulch 18+" of leaves with the "special" mowers and blades they sell down south or when a storm or 2 blows the leaves off the trees at once and there's 2+' of them.

Yep, the window of time is tight before a large amount of snow falls. No time to ride around on a mower trying to mulch or mudding up a customers lawn.

On weekly accounts leaves get mulched and bagged until they can't be. Many cleanups are done for people who cut their own grass but aren't capable of cleaning up/removing a huge amount of leaves.

(The difference sounds to me to be, down here we get stuff done. Sounds like the weather up north keeps you working harder. )

You're right 35dollarlawns
