    Does Anybody Sell The Leaves That They Remove From Lawns? I Had A Lady Call Me Today Wanting To Buy "all I Can Bring Her" She Lives About 20 Minutes From Me. Is This Common? What Should I Charge Its Just Gonna Be Icing On The Cake But I Dont Wanna Scare Her Off With A Price Thats Too High. What Do Yall Think?

    LOL... pay for leaves!! Be thankful if you can get rid of them for free! We get banged to dump leaves around here. People have wised up quite a bit.

    Just charge her transport fees, to cover fuel, and say thank-you :)
    Maybe you can buy composted topdressing from her at a good price.

    Try asking her what "she" wants to pay for them. You could wind up getting more than if you "tell her" what you want for them.

    Let us know what happened. Most of these types of posts, the original poster never comes back to give feedback. It's the least you could do for all our typing...:laugh:

    I agree with Smallaxe...It sounds like she's making some good compost.
