I know this shouldnt be such a surprise to me...but there are guys advertising complete leaf removal for $60. There are also guys doing curbside removal for $30...all yards! I did a curbside the other day that was a wind row about 45' long, 3' high, and 4' wide! How can you do that for $30?? The answer is you do it for 1 or 2 seasons and then realize you could make more as a Home Depot associate or a McDonald's fry cook.
