Let me go back to a conversation between Hubby and me a few days ago…
Hubby - There are bunches of leaves on the deck. It's a real mess.
Me - Yeah, I haven't had time or available bins to put the leaves in. I concentrated on the front yard so the Christmas decorations would look better without a bunch of leaves all over the yard.
Hubby - Well we need to hire a professional to get the leaves off the deck.
Me - A professional?
Hubby - Yes, a professional. It's such a mess there has to be a professional who can get the leaves off the deck. I just don't see another way.
Me - A professional… Today, could you take a broom and sweep the leaves off the deck?
Hubby - No, they need to be gotten up. I don't know. They need to be gone somehow.
Me - Like with the vacuum mulcher that I use in the front yard?
Hubby - Maybe. But they need to go away. We need a professional.
Me - If you sweep the leaves off the deck, I can mulch and bag them. The city will pick them up on Tuesday. They come every week.
Hubby - No, no. We need a professional. This is too big a job for us.
It took less than 5 minutes to sweep and about 10 minutes to mulch the leaves. I guess that makes me a professional. Wonder how much I can charge…
