    I was just wondering how much an hour you guys charge for leaf pick up. Also, what's the most time efficient way of picking up leaves in average sized, suburban neighborhood yards...keeping in mind that all i have is my blower and a 21" honda mower. Thankyou verrrrry much...
    To show my gratitude I have included a delightful trio of whimsical cartoons.

    If I was you I would do 1 of 2 things.

    I would either blow all the leaves onto the lawn and bag all the leaves with the mower.

    Or I would put down a tarp and blow all the leaves on the tarp.

    If you are putting all the leaves in paper bags then I would probably bag them with the mower, that would decrease the amount of bags also because the leaves would be chipped and it would just be easier then the tarp.
