    Ok, so lets say its a 75x50' lot. House is 1500 sq ft (including garage). So that leaves you with a 2250 sq. ft. yard. How much would you charge for a leaf covered yard including flower bed cleanout too?

    how deep are the leaves?
    dump on site?
    removal?
    terrain?

    it all depends, you can't do estimates without seeing the work, just estimate it out for the first two or three and charge by the hour. after a few you'll get good at guesstimating your time.

    1" of leaves, haul away to dump elsewhere, terrain is flat, 3-4 trees, gated backyard.

    This isn't that hard. What's your mowing rate. I'd charge the same for leaves. Actually, depending on the job I charge $5/10 per hour more than my mowing rate.

    switchless, you're kidding right? I charge 2.5x mowing and up. Have all the work I can do.

    This is kind of like asking what would one charge to plow a parking lot, after ten snowfalls.

    $500 for the cleanup.

    Or $500 for the Fall season.

    Price for existing client much less.
