Glan, it is never too early to be selling fall clean-ups, it is just too early to be thinking about the work. My company offers a full yard clean-up, which bascially is picking-up and removing from the property all debris (leaves and sticks) that has fallen during the Fall season. I have about 25 extra customers that are only Fall and Spring clean-ups. I hope to increase the extra customer list this Fall and will start scheduling the clean-ups in Sept., with the work starting at the end of Oct or Nov. I find the clean-ups do add a lot to the gross sales bottom line.

OK. Yes. Never to early to sell any service.


In my case. We don't do any extra cleanups. We have a full dance card as it is.

clean up of leaves from landscaping beds & lawn and also the removal of them from their property...but there are some that let us blow them into their woods, which are the best

clean-ups. we generally remove all leaves, dead and unsightly debris and give the property a final cut for the winter.

generally just leaving the place looking nice for the next season.

BUT ALWAYS--give the places a last cut when you do a clean-up...you will save yourself alot of time in the spring.

lets talk #'s

What do you guys get for fall clean-up removal. I charge around $200, & try to do a weekly clean-up starting mid-Oct thru Thanksgiving. Oh, the $200 is for the season, not per-visit.

I am in that range of price, but my cleanups start first week of November end around mid December. Imposible for us to keep a weekly schedule. They get 3 visits during that time.

We do blow out and remove the leaves all during October. It's just that once the clocks change I can't kee the same hours daily. So that is why for me anyway our "cleanups" start first week in November.

Lawnboy, That sales pitch probably gets you plenty of business, but I am afraid to make pitches like that cause I worry that after making the pitch what if those problems happen inspite of the gutters being cleaned (by me). Has this ever happened to you? I reckon you could just say "the gutters should've been cleaned sooner".

what are u doing for the $200? are we talking weekly visits from mid october till thanksgiving? plus disposal? around here, it is very rare to have to haul leaves. most townships allow you to just leave them curbside in a pile. we charge for grasscutting until mid october. after that we clean leaves until december, the work is priced accordingly anywhere from as low as $75 for a one time visit, to $400-600 for the season.
