this is my first year and I bid on two clean up jobs residental. one was 1/4 acer. didn't have fall clean up. with leaves every where & vines around her house with leaves in it. I just guessed how long it would take and told her $150.00 for clean up. and she said yes with out debate.. so I wonder if I could of gotten more. the other bid i put in was $140.00 clean up not as many leaves but wanted lawn maint. service.. I'm a one man crew just figuring around 20.00 hr. I think these are good estamets what ya think?right now its been very wet in cleveland. I've seen some commerial accounts getting clean up & mulch but thats it. really the my question is whats the fastest way to clean up all those wet leaves? I'm thinking wait for it to dry a little but that will likely be in a couple weeks. If those leafs are somewhat dry will the lawnmower suck them up or is there enother option?
