Leaf Clean-Up Questions

    I'm new into the Lawn Care Business and I have a few questions regarding leaf clean-up service. First, is it more efficient and effective to mulch the leaves with the mower and then finish with blower and remove excess from the premises, or is it best to remove the leaves without mulching? Better ideas?

    Also, I'm pricing this service from $40-$50 hr + dump fee if I remove from the premises, and I'm estimating 1-2 hours for 1/4 -1/2 acre lots. I realize that the time to service depends on the amount of trees and leaves, but does this sound reasonable?

    Thanks
