    I don't mind leaves at all. I don't really have much extra cost in it since I can dump it all behind the house. All I have is a little extra time, which is definitely made up for in additional charges.

    Fall cleanups are annoying especially with shortening days and the pressure of an early snow. But its nice to pad the final days of positive cash flow before the winter drought.

    I like leaves, like others stated..with the right equipment I make more $$$ per hour than mowing....seems people in my area will pay good $$$ for leaf removal. I use a cyclone rake for leaf removal and makes the work alot easier

    I voted tolerate, but I have to say: I kind of like doing leaves. Don't get me wrong it's a pain in the a** sometimes, but I don't mind them at all. It's a nice change of pace.

    If i keep mowing grass which i dont plan on i want to branch in to something diffrent. If i do still cut some grass i will be building something to suck them right off the tree.

    I couldn't vote because I actually like leaf season. I run Walker mowers and pull my trailer with a big vac truck. To me leaf clean ups are no problem at all and are a welcomed change of pace. Not to mention theres alot of money to be made doing it at the end of the season.

    Earlier on I said that I like doing leaves, I would like to change my answer now, as the season is still not over. lol
