Alright, don't blast me for this one, but since Ive been on lawn site Ive been amazed about all the talk on leaf cleanup. All my yards have pecan, magnolia, dog woods, oaks and pines not counting many others. I have never charged for a leaf cleanup in 8 years. What I do is take my blower and blow the leaves away from house and flower beds (by this time of the year weed eating is about done with) and the time comes out about the same. I then use the mower to mulch them up and that is it. I actually done a yard today like this (lots of pecan leaves) and finished 15 minutes faster than what it usually takes because the grass had hardly grown and no weed eating. Yesterday did 2 with pine straw and both yards took me about 10 minutes longer to mulch than mow (straw is a b--ch). Other LCO I talked to in my area don't charge extra for it either unless its hauling them off. Now if I have to bag them and take them off I would charge extra for it but 90% of my clients are happy with mulching. I keep reading on here about all the $$$ in leaf cleanup but I wished it would go over here, would like to get extra for it.
