    Just curious about the going rate for leaf removal say a house with 1/2 acre.

    All depends on the landscape of the yard I'd say. I'm shooting for $75/hour, but many times end up around $45-60 after taking longer than I'd guessed and chatting with the customer, etc. I take my best guess on the time it will take, multiply by $75 and try not to end up more than 20% off of what I bid to the customer. That keeps the bill within reason of what they expected and cushions the blow to me if I am way off on the time estimate.

    is that once a season? I clean up my customers every 2 weeks when the leaves are falling......but I only charge $60-75 per visit for 1/2 acre. And I do them is less than an hour solo.
