    I put out some flyers for leaf cleanup. I have no clue what to charge. I plan on mulching the leaves with my lawn tractor or mulch and vac into the leaf catcher and leaving the bags with the customer. Do you give prices over the phone, or do you look at jobs before a quote (not enough time in my day.
