    do you charge extra for accounts that are on a dead end street, or on a busy street where there is no place for you to parking

    No I don't. All of the busy streets that I do work on have room for me to pull close to the curb, put out a few safety cones, and get to work. Can you pull in their driveways if you have no room in the street?

    A yard should be timed tailgate to tailgate, If you have to walk extra and it takes time, Yes I would.
