    Do you guys basically leave it up to the customer to mulch the leaves or remove them?
    What's the best height to use for mulching? Higher or lower?
    Do you mulch a few times then remove after the last time they fall?

    Everything depends on what is going to kill the grass. We can't allow a heavy mulch of leaves laying on the lawn. The lawn is cleaned every 2 weeks minimum.
