Judging from his previous posts on the subject, THEGOLDPRO has leaf cleanups down to a science and is very well equipped for them, so he probably can do them cheaper than most due to his efficiency. Mine range from no extra charge to about $600, with the average probably being in the $200 to $300 range. I have quite a few where I can just blow the leaves to the woods...love those jobs!

Yea with the amount of equipment and man power we have we do most clean-ups in half the time some times 1/3 of the time it takes most other company's to do the same size job. We take fall clean-ups very seriously because we realize we only have about a month to get as much done as possible and make as much money as possible. Hence the reason we own 2 hurricane blowers, and 5 backpack blowers.

Its simple math really, we can get twice as much done in the same amount of time as the average landscaping company. therefore we make twice as much money in that same time frame.

We can charge as little as $250 for a clean-up because we live in a very wooded part of the state and loose everything into the woods on every property we service, So when we show up to a house 2-3 guys jump on back pack blowers and start cutting in the house and 2 other people jump on the hurricane blowers and start to clean the lawn off, when the back packers are done cutting the house in they move over to the hurricanes and help move the piles faster by fluffing the leaves. We can bang most properties out in about 30-40 minutes and move on to the next property.

You wouldnt believe it but we do cleanups with forks.. We start in August...


Just kidding
Also Gold Pro, Dont you think it would be more cost affective to blow those leaves into that wooded area?!?!?!

I know we have a few 200 acre properties where we just take our tractor with a PTO driven blower and just blow them way back into the woods. Saves me HUGE bucks since i dont have to haul them away...

Just a thought!

EDIT: Sorry looks like someone beat me to it..

We blow everything into the woods. We haul nothing away.
