    As stated above...mulch as many as you can...then bag or convince customers to get hard sided containers...

    My brother and I had somewhat the same setup when your age, except 21inch push lawnboys ...learned how to work...save some time for being with friends and socializing also important

    You guys are doing really good for yourself. Keep up the good work. Are you trying to put some to the side for your first pickup?
    For leaves I always mulch. It's beneficial to the yard and I don't have to haul away or move the leaves. Your pricing sounds about right most my small yards are $30 or $35 a cut.

    Here in va there are a lot of leaves mulching dosent leave a clean appearance. Having to take a mulching kit off then to put a bagger on would be a pain. We have done like the op posted use the full bagger to mulch leaves.

    First Fall clean up ever. It's just me doing things now as my brother decided this kind of work isn't for him. It took me 2 hours from start to finish. I charged $75 (I know you probably can't believe this but I had originally quoted $60 before thinking it would take an hour.) Took me a while to get a system down but all is good now and I've already scheduled another clean up with a different customer. Let me know what you think!

    Finished a leaf clean up today. There were too many leaves to mulch in the clients fenced in back yard so I tarped them and finished up with my Gravely.

    That looks really awesome man. The Gravely leaves a nice finished look.
