    Just wondering when every body else starts doing fall clean-ups. I like to start in mid October if weather here in Michigan allow us to.

    cut till last week of october. clean-ups start the second week of november. Most times about 10-15% of the leaves are down by mid october. Thats wasting time in my mind.

    I used to try to get a jump on things and start in late August but the customers got pissed when I raked green leaves out of the trees.

    We switch over to leaf cleanups beginning of November. We will continue right up to Christmas if weather allows.
