    I do one right around Halloween and then another after Thanksgiving. Is this how you guys do them, twice a year? Or are you doing them almost every time you show up? That seems to expensive, but maybe i'm wrong.

    On my regular customers I do them at the same intervals as mowing 7, 10 or 14 days. Whatever the customer desires. I charge them slightly more according to the amount of extra time it takes, it varies from yard to yard and in some cases it takes less time. There are some customers that only want it done once or twice a year and I charge them depending on the amount of time I think it will take.

    Same way I always do it. When the leafs start to fall they get picked up. If its just bagging leafs and not cleaning out beds I tack on an extra 20-30 depending on how many there are. When I start to do full cleanups I went to a $150 min this year. Some of my customers want them done 2 or 3 times a month and others want them done 2 or 3 times a year.
