    I am looking to find some good tips/suggestions for estimating leaf removal. I know for the homeowners who wish to have there leaves removed one time at the end of the year is an easy est.(charge per man hr) but when the customer wants a weekly removal it seems to get a little tricky. Any good ideas? Thanks

    if your using a vac on the mower and you normally dont use one, charge 2x or 1.5x plus a hauling fee.

    If you double cut it with a mulch kit on the mower charge 2x. If you have to get out a blower and use the truck loader charge per hour. Really the only way you can accuratly do it.

    It depends on the yard! The basic thing we do is 10x the price of mowing (weekly).
    New customers are charged by the hour/man.
    For the weekly thing? Charge 2.5x per mowing. Be careful you could behind really quick! Good Luck.
