when do your clean ups start?

I start heavy leaf removal in mid to late Oct and go until late November.

The problem is that there are enough leaves falling in late september and early october to make the lawns look messy.

do you guys blow out beds and edges on regular cuts until clean up time, or do you just bag whats on the lawn?

Any advice on how to keep 'em looking good with as little extra time as possible would be great.

You start before us.

We stay on top of it with blowing it all out and get most with the mowers.

As the end of October approaches it gets heavier and when the clocks change for that last week, we do what ever is needed to complete the week.

November, there is no schedule. Blowing everything clean and taking it with us. End around mid December.

We usually start at the end of October and go to the first week of December. But heck last year I was having calls at the end of December for clean ups and I had to turn them down because all of the equiupment was already winterized.
