90% of my business is basic mow, trim, edge, blow and go. they are actually required by me to call and cancel so I don't waste a trip out there. either they call or if I go out I either cut it or charge them a fuel charge visit depending on my mood.
Yes our means of doing biz is different, but no one right answer fortunately.
I personally want to check ALL the lawns I mow myself, and call my own shots. People want me to maintain their lawn, I don't need them calling me I know what I am doing. Plus some folks may just take a liking to calling you and telling you 'just skip me this week' even when the lawn needs cut. I had that problem couple years back. No more.
