I just throw in "Its a POSSIBLE cause of deteriation of your home. After all, the less possibilites of small problems leads to less possibility of BIG problems". This way I'm off the hook

I offer a service no one else does.

I offer to remove the leaves from the trees before they fall.

This way I can start leaf removal in late September.

exit 9 my brother. where men are men, and the sheep, and switchless, run scared. yup, we have one time cleanups that go for 4-6 bills, and my "full service" clients, the ones with oak trees, are charged usually 4-5 bills for basically the month of november. tell u why. we call it grass cutting until mid october, the grass is still growing a little, and the leaves are just starting to fall. after mid oct, we usually dont come around again till the first week in november. then we usually do the first week in november, the second week, maybe the third, and the last week is usually the last time they see us. sometimes, we go the first week in dec for final cleanup. all depends on the weather. mind you, we charge alot, its worth every nickle though, oak trees never seem to run out of leaves.
