    What do u guys do when u have a mowing customer who doesnt want u to do the leaves but still wants u to mow??? Do you blow all the leaves into surrounding beds and woods, mow, and charge a small fee? you just run the mower over the leaves, cut them up, and leave them be???

    There are lcos here that will spend tons of time to blow off huge lawn areas in order to mow and not charge a dime. Whats up with that?

    If they don't want you to do the leaves don't do them. Just mow over them and eventually they'll call you to pick them up once they get enough of them in their yard or get tired of looking at the mess

    Just shred them. you can't be real concerned about cut quality on this, so don't really slow down for it.

    if u have a good size tree limb put a hook on the top of the box and using a rope hoist it up and drive under it..

    If no extra pay, no extra work.

    Mow over grassy areas and don't worry about the leaves.
