Just wondering, what is the competition rate with kids raking leaves? It is a suck job, but I'd rather do it than waiting tables if I can at least make $25-30/hr. What do kids 12-16 charge like $20 for a whole front yard ( like 2-3 hours work)??? I'm just curious if u guys have been underbid by many children and thus making it hard to get many customers. I'm pretty sure most of my LC customers will pick me for this, but it's not enough to pay the bills so I'm hoping to get a lot of new "leaf removal" customers. I was thinking about giving quotes as to sq footage, this way people won't trip over the hourly est ( of $25-35 hr). Like for 1,000 sq ft of leaves I figure about $50 since it will take about an hour and 1/2. I know it's sorta cheap for some of u guys but then I think I may have to just rake it.
