    how would you rate spring cleanups as an overall money maker? good money, ok money, crappy money, just do them cus it's part of maintenance try to make it up somewhere else?

    Good money, I charge about 4-6 times (sometimes more) as weekly mowing. Easy work, most take about two hours. Just dethatch and take all the leaves away. Easy money IMO.

    Spring clean ups rank as my least favorite thing to do, behind fall clean ups and pruning

    I don't feel that it is easy money, and I would have to say its an average money marker, nothing great, but nothing poor.

    For me its fair money, after winter and no money it looks great, but for the time and energy put out it isnt as good as mowing in my opinion. But its part of the game and please them now and work threw out the year for me
