I've given price breaks several times when needed. It goes a long way sometimes

You are right it takes about 15 minutes. Our favor to her was not cutting her off when she got behind and never nagging her about it. In the fall we would charge her an extra $40 at the end of the season for cleaning the leaves and boy does she have a ton of them! At the back of her yard is woods so we would cut and clean the yard every week and only charged her an extra $40 at the end of the year. I bet she did not think of that when she decided to switch. I bet these guys are going to want more than $40 to keep the leaves cleaned up. Then again if they are cutting for $20 they may do it for free............
