    This time of year, we always get the few leaves falling and gathering along the curbline. What is your SOP for them??
    We've trained our crews to blow them up onto the turf as well as off patios, drives and hardscapes prior to mowing so they can be sucked up w/ the mowers. Unless the task takes more than 5 mins, there is no additional charge, otherwise our leaf removal fee goes into effect. It "leaves" a cleaner look and to me is a lot more professional. Just wondering what you all do.

    We do the same

    But there is no extra charge. It's all factored in with the fall cleanup.

    Any excess over 5 minutes is charged, for storm cleanups and for fall cleanup. Even for touchups in springtime after major spring cleanup.
