Average Cost of Professional Leaf Removal

Plenty of different factors can play a role in how much you pay a professional to remove the leaves from your yard, patio, driveway or gutter system. On average, however, homeowners should expect to pay anywhere between $536 and $730 for these services.

Choosing Blowing or Bagging

One of the decisions that you will need to make before hiring professionals for leaf removal is whether you want the leaves blown off your property or actually raked up and bagged. Unsurprisingly, raking requires more work, and to pick up leaves from the ground can be additional labor costs. However, bagging and removing leaves is often best if you live in an urban area or have substantial trees nearby.

Leaf Vacuuming and Mulching Costs

If you are an avid gardener, there is the option of vacuuming up leaves and then using the resulting leaf mixture as mulch for your plant and flower beds. Professionals can use a yard vacuum to suck up fallen leaves from the ground, and then an attachment dices the leaves until they form a fine mulch perfect for gardening.

Leaf Removal From Gutters

When leaves fall to the ground, they can often find their way into your gutters and cause clogs. Thankfully, professionals can clean out your gutters and clear any leaves that might cause problems in the future. Having this done once at the end of fall can be a smart decision for home maintenance, and the costs run between $193 and $255 for the average house.
