I was wondering about fall cleanups. How do you do it do you charge your clients extra for picking up the leave's in the fall. The leafs are falling and you still have to cut or maybe you dont, but i am sure you spend more time picking up leaves then you do just cutting the place. A) So do you charge extra for it ? B) Inlcude it in your contract price ? Knowing it will take you an extra hour just to pick up the leafs and knowing that you will have to come 4 time's to pick up the leafs. C) Do not put it in your contract and charge however long it takes you to do the job to the client as well as disposal fee's as well as how long it takes you to unload at the disposal site. I can see not getting a contract because the client thinks your over billing. I would imagine you list this in your contract as well as edgeing flower bed's, Tree Pits, Pruneing shrubs, Fertilizer and weed control. The way i want to bid is to add all this into the contract but also note that this is beeing done for them and thats what the price reflects. Most places in the summer usualy go dormant because not all of them have sprinkler systems so you save on time there and might not need to do a full cut for 3 sometimes 4 weeks. The last one is how do you estimate for disposal i dont know how much the stuff weights but i know a ton is $60 at the local dump, i have never had that many leaves in my truck not even from my own house and i have 2 huge maple's in the back yard. I dont usuly go to the dump for this stuff i have compost place down the road where allot of guys go to and its cheaper then the dump. The only time i go to the dump is when its comeing from my house because 1000Kilo's is free at the dump. Thanks, Dave.
