    Hi everyone. Fall season is here and leaf pick-up just around the corner. This is my first year and would like to do some fall cleaning. I was wondering when pricing leaf pick-up do you charge by the hour? If you do do you tell the client the hourly charge or do you tell them just the total charge and estimate how long it will take you? ANy help will be greatly appreciated.

    To expand on this question. Do you clean up all the leaves in the parking lot or just stricly remove them from the lawn?????????

    What I do is what ever I charge to mow the yard I double it and charge a little more. So say you charge $50 to mow the yard I would charge around $115 to pick up the leaves depending on how many trees there are and how big they are. Hope this helps.
