Wow! Boy did I bite off more than I could chew. Huge job, enormus, ugly leaf removal job... sticks, sticks and more sticks. 12 + giant trees. What was I thinking, apparently I was not. New to biz this year, mainly I'll be doing just leaf removals, not much by way of weekly mowings. Anyway my Dad helped me with the job - thank goodness. I dumped my Cyclone Rake 8 times and he dumped truck bed piled with leaves 8 + times. Luckily we could dump on site (they have a huge burn pile, its on a farm) Worked 9 hours on Saturday and another 4 Sunday, Dad and I both working 23 hours total, plus another 5 when my husband showed up. Needless to say I won't be taking this one on next year... might not have all the help. Just wasn't pretty, not much grass, so when it was done just didn't look as good as I had hoped. Yeah, all the leaves were up but not what I had invisioned. Will be dropping off bill today... I'll let you know how it goes.
