When I find a locked gate and no one home I usually do the front yard and call and let them know that their back yard is locked and that if I am in the neighborhood again before their next mow, that I will stop by and mow it. But here is my question. If I never get the chance to stop back by, do you still charge them full price?

fix and resolve the issue buy them giving you access to the key for when you mow. for an occasionally locked gate the billing is what it is.

Sounds like a GOOD plan. That's what I did.

If it's a chain link fence just loosen the top post hinge.

Mower: 2010 Scag Tiger Cub

Question: I''m looking for aftermarket fuel caps with gauges. Any suggestions on where to find them. I don't believe Scag offers them.

After the first time. It costs a couple bucks. Give them a combination lock. Then you dont have to worry about keys and such.

I would make an exception the first time but after that...Yes...Charge the full amount. The major expense in mowing a lawn is the travel, load, unload time.
