    If you did a real good, neat fall cleanup last year, how much is there really to clean up in the spring?

    Good point except you always get those calls from non-regular clients that are looking for a spring spruce up. We charge $37.50/man hour plus debris disposal fees.

    No matter how good the fall clean up was, there's 4 months of winter and wind to mess up a yard.

    I hate doing spring clean ups, but when I do, I price by the hour.

    :D

    I agree completely, there is always some mess around from winds,etc. I hate the spring cleanups especially because of the sweetgum balls all over the place, but money is money...I also charge by the hour..
