2.LEAF CLEAN UP
3.PUTTING SOIL IN FLOWER BEDS
If anyone can help with this; it would be greatly appreciated.
I don't pick up a dump of it, I buy the bags and charge the customer.
It's pretty simple. Just stab open the bag and poor a nice line and even it out by grabbing a handful each time. Don't roll the mulch as you level it out - it will become mixed with the old crap and look bad.
I can't give you a duration, but it's fast and worth doing.
I try to avoid this during the spring, as the leafs are wet and wont lift with a blower when trying to shoot them out of flower beds. You'll need to get in there with a rake or your hands.
Though, if you don't have a tractor to pick up the leaves, I wouldn't advertise this service if you only have a bagger walk behind mower. It'll take a very long time.
*If you have a tractor with a bagging feature, you can eat up the leaves very fast. Jobs don't take that long (where I live) e.g; 45 relaxing minutes per 6000 sqft.
If you want
to use a walk behind mower, raise your wheels to the max setting. Push your mower so only the back tires are touching the ground and you will "super mulch" the hell out the leaves. Do one pass, then put the bag on your lawn mower and do the lawn over again - this time picking up the leaves. The leaves with be mulched/compact and you wont need to worry about wasting so many garbage bags.
Putting Soil In Flower Beds
It's fairly simple and possibly easier than laying mulch - if you have the right tool for the job (size depending) it wont take very long. The most difficult part is lugging the bags of soil from your vehicle to the job. The rest is simple.
Everything but the Leaf Removal is very fast. It's a matter of taking the soil/mulch and placing it.
If you give us an idea of what projects you may have coming up, I can better judge the time it will take you.
