Leaves are my least favorite service...they can be super dry and dusty or wet, clog and stain everything. It can rain mostly, even snow, or just plain be cold as H E Double Hockey Sticks! A good wind can blow most of the leaves away to the neighbors or they can all blow into a client's property. So with all that said...when someone asks me for a leaf removal price...I tell them this...The average cost is $300. That means it may be $150 or it could be $500. I do leaves 3-4 times...one weekly service with the last...the last services after all leaves have fallen and I can almost promise it'll all be done by Thanksgiving. I could care less if they say no. I know whats involved. I can guarantee after we are done the home owner will have a hard time finding a leaf on their property. I use backpack blowers and a ZTRs with bagging systems. I have rakes on hand but they are just for looks! All jobs are dump on site or curb pick-up.
