Leaf blowing is a popular and efficient method for clearing a yard of dropped leaves. Landscaping and yard maintenance contractors often provide leaf blowing along with mulching, bagging, and removal of leaves, or as a standalone service. A number of factors may influence the cost of your leaf blowing project, from the size of your yard to the number and variety of nearby trees. Your contractor can assess the characteristics of your property to determine the cost of your job.
Leaf Blowing at a Home
The landscape features of your yard help determine the complexity of most lawn care tasks. Leaf blowing and cleanup at single family homes usually costs between $42 and $186 , with the time and labor needs influenced by the number of trees and shrubs on your property as well as by the overall size of your yard and the ease of leaf disposal.
Leaf Blowing at an Apartment
Apartment facilities can range from converted homes to large complexes, and have a wide variety of landscape designs. Rates for leaf blowing at apartments can vary greatly with the size and features of the property, ranging from $106 to $317 around the country. Scheduling, disposal, and noise considerations may affect service rates if your contractor must make special accommodations to suit the residents of an apartment facility.
Leaf Blowing at a Business
Like at apartments, the cost of leaf blowing services at commercial locations can be affected by a number of conditions, from the size and features of the grounds to scheduling that accommodates the operations of a business. Project rates range from $112 to $342 and may vary with the equipment and crew needed to complete the job efficiently with minimal disruption to a business’ employees and clients.
Planning for Leaf Blowing Services
Leaf blowing is a time and cost-effective alternative to raking fallen leaves at any type of property. Discuss with your contractor how the features of your property, frequency of cleanup, and related services can affect the cost of the job. Equipment and manpower will vary with the scale of the project and local ordinances may affect the ease of disposal or scheduling, thus influencing the expense of the job. Considering a number of factors that may influence the cost of the job can help you plan and budget for your leaf blowing services.
