    Do you include gutter cleaning? What exactly do you provide?

    we blow the leaves and pick up the sticks, anything else is extra, such as mowing/gutters/trimming back beds and so on.

    blowout the beds, clean up the leaves, the sticks, and i add a final mowing into the price as well, if the yard needs it. so for example a clean up would be 300+65 for a cut 365 for the total.

    Normally, lawn and beds only-all debris. If a client wants the gutters blown out, I'll only do it on a roof pitch of 4:12 or less.

    Charge hourly and include cutting of the ornamental grasses , cutting of dead perennials, picking up all branches, cleaning all beds & shrubs, blow under decks, and pretty much leave it sparkling. We do not do the gutters unless they ask us to do it. We also skip a lot of the details if they are on a budget and give us a time limit on how much they want to spend.

    blow yard clean of leaves, clean out flower beds, blow deck/patio clear of leaves and debris. mow if needed adds an additional 40+ depending on lot size, any other requests are added on top of that.
