    Ok where does the leaf fairy come from? I swear we start doing the clean-ups and the leaves multiply.LOL! Seriously this has been a great year for us. Buying the leaf trailer has turned out to be a good investment. With the advertising we have done we have been getting 2-3 jobs per day and are scheduled through next week, not including our existing mowing customers.!! Leaves are like brown snow, better than aerating. Here are some before during and after pictures from one lawn today. :cool2::cool2:

    When I first bought the trailer I listed it under "My new leaf toy" in this forum. I have made a few improvements to it and plan more for next year. It is really nice not having to take 2 trailers everywhere.

    Dry leaves! What I would do to see DRY leaves right about now! All week we've been playing with soaking wet, matted down leaves, plugging the truck loader, dragging HEAVY tarps... Man, we'd be getting so much more done if the damn weather would just cooperate!!!! Today was our first dry day in about a week, and we had 20-30 mile per hour winds!!:realmad:

    Those leaves were mostly wet, we just blow the heck out of them and try to let them set in the pile as long as we can to dry out. Took 7, 10x24 tarp loads out of that back yard alone.

    Robertsturf, What kind of prices are you getting out of people. Just a ballpark figure. My area looks a lot like yours with leaf drop amounts.
