I see where a lot of guys don't know what to do with leaves. One of the common suggestions is to "mulch" them. This only makes a mess. Muhching does a good job of reducing the size of the leaves, but what if you have a foot of leaves covering the whole yard? What if the leaves are wet? What if the backyard is 150 yards from your truck? Here is what we do. First off, Major leaf removal is not a job for 1 man, especially if you have lots to do everyday. Get a crew or some part-timers to help you if you don't already have employees. Putting leaves in trash bags is a joke. Most of the lawns we do would require 500 bags. We don't have any sort of street cleaners like some communities, we have to haul it all off. I have a Ford F350 with a flat bed and a dump which can dump over 50 tons. Kinda funny that the dump hoist can dump more than the truck can even carry. OUR METHOD Start off by 2 or 3 guys doing nothing but blowing leaves for the first 30 minutes or so. Get them to several piles around the property. If you have another guy, he can help with a rake. Once this is done, we lay out a large tarp. blue plastic kind, and put the piles on the tarp. Two guys can drag the tarp to the truck. A Big truck works best. A dump truck is better. A trailer means that you will have to scoop them out again later. We finish the job with 2 guys running billigoats on the cement areas and 2 guys mowing the lawn. A dig dump tuuck is almost a must, if you want to be in this business and really be able to do some work, find a way to buy one. Landfill is another problem. I bought a 5 acre piece of junk land just for a mini landfill. You can always ask your customers if they have a piece of land like this, then offer them a trade out. Driving to the landfill for me was taking up way too much time. Some of our leaf removals will fill up the truck in no time.
