no, im 20, so we are in the same boat. PM me some time. I learned not to give discounts for every week, charge MORE for every two weeks.

That was exactly the advice I was going to give.

I've never mowed on a weekly schedule. Always mowed-as-it-growed.
Which in the bluegrass belt is about every 5 days in the spring.
It helps with the problem of everybody wanting mowed on friday.

1. However many times they want me to. I let the customer decide. It's their lawn.

2. No, cause they will probably cut back to bi weekly and want the same price. Then you'll get on here complaining about it like everyone else does come July and August.

3. Neither. They both are annoying.

4. Not farming out accounts to illegals sooner.
