Find out how much your project will cost

In the Fall there is nothing more beautiful than the changing colors of the fall leaves from green to red and gold, However, once the leaves fall to the ground they can become an eyesore and eventually a rotting mess if they are not taken care of! There are a few factors that will help to determine the cost of leaf removal.

How many trees? What kind of trees?

It stands to reason that the more trees you have on our property, the more dead leaves will build up and the more you will need removed. When you contact a professional about leaf removal , be prepared to tell them approximately how many trees you have on your property and what types of trees they are (different trees produce different amount of leaves) so that they can give you an accurate estimate of time and cost

Blowing or Removing?

Do you want your leaves blown off your lawn, or actually bagged, removed from your property and properly disposed of? If you want your leaves bagged and removed this will take a considerably larger amount of time, and a lot more backbreaking labor to accomplish. This will cost you a lot more. If you choose to just have your leaves blown off your lawn, be careful that you are not just blowing them onto someone else's lawn!

Vacuuming and Mulching

You may want to have your leaves vacuumed off your property. With this approach you have two options. You can have the leaves vacuumed, bagged and removed. This takes more time and work, but removes the leaves completely. However you can decide to use your leaves as mulch in your garden. When the leaves have gone through the vacuum and been chopped up into dust, have the poured onto your garden and water them to start the decomposition and they will make a great mulch. In this way you do something nice for your garden and save money to mulch in the process!
