Anyone been asked that one a time or two? Everyone has their own selling style and useful pointers. What kind of response have you found to work well for selling a mulch job in this scenario? First thoughts that come to my mind - #1 Obvious cosmetic reasons #2 Leaves are just going to blow around all over your yard and make a mess anyway #3 Leaves aren't going to give you the same insulating factor or as good of moisture control as mulch I know I've read that oak leaves are more likely to contribute to acidic conditions as they break down. Aren't leaves more likely to be a breeding grounds for insects and diseases also? I know for pet owners, ticks favorite habitat is fallen leaves. Thanks for responses, it's always great to have a few new ideas for converting objections to sales.
