    " hi bob this is mrs jones, when you come to clean the leaves this week, don't come till saturday, after 10 am. i'm having someone come to clean the gutters and the roof, and they'll be about an hour. i told them to just blow everything out onto the lawn, this way, you can just pick up the stuff from the gutters and roof, when you do the leaf cleanup."

    I would call her back tonite and let her know that this will likely increase your efferts and you will have to adjust the cost of this job accordingly. This way she has to decide #1 to have the gutter dude clean up after himself like he is supposed to do, or #2 pay you extra for your effort.
    Shes obviously tring to get a cheaper gutter cleaning at your expence
