Leaf Cleanup Expectations

I'm new to this business and was wondering what everyone else tries to accomplish in a leaf cleanup. I mean do you try to get every single leaf? Maybe I need to explain a little: I've been doing cleanups here and I bid for a certain amout of time, but then, once I get going I find myself taking way longer than I should because some leaves are small and stuck in the Bermuda and very difficult to blow out. I dunno. I am a solo, so I know I'm not gonna be super fast or anything, but I think maybe I'm trying to get things TOO perfect. Any thoughts?

That's why I do all my cleanups hourly. There's a big difference time wise between getting 90% of the leaves out of the ground cover and 100% or here in the norhteast, getting every last acorn. If someone wants it done more detailed, no problem, but it's gonna cost.
I agree 100%

In the Terms of Lawn Service my customer signs it states: "About 90% of the leaves from a yard can be removed from a yard and beds. Leaves embedded in shrubs, vines, underneath tight ground hugging plants or shrubs cannot be removed 100% with a rake and blower, some leaves will remain."

Never had a customer who had a problem with those terms.
