    We get a ton of leaves to deal with. How do you explain a weekly cleanup fee for your customers, with a final cleanup coming in the end of November???
    I try and bill myself and employees at 50 per hour plus disposal

    We try to never tell customers our hourly fee for leaves. We know the average time to mow their lawn and bill t&m for extra time spent removing the leaves. Each evening we send around a truck to vacuum leaves from neighborhoods that don't have leaf pickups. We bill heavily for that.

    thread above is our rate scale for past 4 years and how we take care of things in deciduous leaf "St. Louis Cardinals" country.

    We put on the gator blades on the wb and Z after leaves are blown/ tarped to streets and drives for municipal vacuuming, or moved to their woods.

    Haul-away is $345 and up, additional to the thread rates.
