    I haven't made anything. I just mulch 'em up, leave 'em on the lawn and shortly after, get fired.
    They want me to bag 'em up? What the...................? Thumbs Up :drinkup:

    I dont do many leaf clean ups. Most guys in my area do them for free in order to offset the $25 per cut they charge.

    We made $800 for a one time cleanup on one lot over an acre,lots of beds,bushes and trees.Last year this DR decided to do it himself,he just blew everything off the lawn into his beds on top of his mulch;whatever.
