I have a lazer with a ultra vac, and do my regular customers weekly for leaves. When the ultra vac comes out, I also blow the leaves from beds, then vac them up. I will charge 10-15 more, depending on the time I spend doing this. Now if it is a person that has waited until they all fall, I will give a high price, because the grass has not been cut and the leaves are matted in the lawn. The one time cleanups take a lot longer, and are harder on the equiptment and yourself.Most of the time I charge an hourly rate, but will bid the job, and do pretty well. Did a search on leaf cleanups, here is a link to more answers.

When the leaves start getting real thick we charge double reg mowing plus 5$ every 44 gallon pail
Hope this helps you some
