a company i just bought serviced some extremely high maint customers, they want the yard perfect all the time, not a leaf to be seen anywhere, mow twice a week, get every little crape myrtle flower out of the pond types. we blow the beds out each visit the mowers dont always get all the leaves because of when you turn and all that. was thinking of just blowing the leaves out of the beds against a fence and vacin them up with a small hand held, well the most powerful handheld i could get... but they are willing to pay for everything, 1 is a $25 size yard and she pays 400/month on a 12 mo contract and doesnt even do rye. and that doesnt include color changes/mulch/xmas lights. since we are there 2 times a week and its not a huge amount of leaves but they all need to be gone, thought i may try it, anyone do this, or have this situation? i dont like bustin the trash bags out all the time i like my equipment to keep me from doing the hands on stuff =) and i dont look forward to raking a pile of 4 leaves and puttin it into the trash bag. we have alot of commercial where it could be used for cig butts as well. but ya. any thoughts?
