Leaf Raking for your Lawn Care Business

Welcome to Leaf Mountain

With a few days to go before Christmas, many of your lawn care customers will be having Christmas parties and relatives over to visit. Because of this, they will want to have their lawn and landscaping tidied up one last time. This is a perfect opportunity for you to contact your customers to see if they need any yard work performed. You will probably be surprised how many customers will give you some extra work right before Christmas.

I paid a visit to the leaf dumping site our community public works department uses to dump all the leaves they collect from residential yards. The area fans out and is about 250′ wide X 200′ long. It is probably about 100′ deep. The leaves are left to decay. It looks like a leaf mountain. Our public works requires home owners to rake their leaves to the curb and not bag the leaves.

Lawn care customers pay good money this time of year to have their leaves cleaned up. So, if you own a lawn care business or if you are just looking to make extra money around the holidays. Leaf work can put great money in your pocket. Many lawn care companies do not know how to properly estimate leaf cleanup jobs. So, we have developed a special lawn care business tutorial and estimating software package.

Where did the summer go?

It seems like only yesterday I was complaining about 100 degree temperatures. Now, though the days are warm, I am waking to 50 degree mornings. Ah, I love Autumn. The air is crisp, the temperatures are comfortable, and the night’s sky is clear and full of stars.

Autumn is a very active time of year for most lawn care companies. In addition to leaf cleanup and gutter cleaning, important services such as core aeration, overseeding, bed maintenance, and pre-winter cleanup should be added to your list of services. Autumn is a perfect time to prepare a lawn for next spring’s growth. Aeration and overseeding is especially important during the next few weeks for cool season grasses.

Since many customers do not understand that prep. work now sets the stage for a much healthier lawn next year, it is our duty to educate customers and suggest services.

What services can you think of to add to your lawn care business?

If you are having trouble coming up with a list of services and corresponding prices, take a look at our Lawn Care Business course, it is packed with ideas to keep your lawn care business running all year long.
