Ensure that the company you choose maintains liability insurance and has a current business license.
Many services use a leaf blower to gather the leaves onto a tarp which then is removed from the site. Some companies mulch the leaves into tiny pieces that can remain on the lawn.
In the rainy season, excess leaves can become a breeding ground for pests like mosquitoes. Removing the leaves prior to the heavy rains ensures fewer bugs in your yard in the spring.
Sign a contract. This helps you to understand the exact services that you will receive, and lets you know when and if the leaf cleanup company is meeting all expectations.
Ask for a guarantee or refund policy. If you decide at some point in your contracted period to cancel or change your services, ensure that the company does not charge you a penalty.
Find out if the lawn maintenance company offers services other than leaf cleanup. This will make it simple for you to keep your yard in shape no matter what the season.
