    I left most customers know I'd be charging $5 /bag extra-couple said just 'mulch' leaves..thats ok, but one of my best customer (wants just mulched) but, hate to leave leaves all over his drive that wind just piled up? today I went ahead and racked/bagged them up then blew out drive. Should I just consider the drive as part of work expected..or let it go next time? I explained in the letter sent out the $5/bag was cheap to cover my labor, bag cost, and gas to deliver to recycle point. The driveway took extra 15 minutes- and more labor. opinions please? Geno

    Blow the driveway first, then mulch them in or bag them depending on what this customer is paying you for.

    Blow the driveway leafs on to the lawn. Run your mower over them. Put you bagger on after you mulch them. Pick them up. Charge by the hour.

    I charge $60.00 per hour for cleanups.
