Sorry I haven't responded until now. Been super busy!
I am from the Akron area. I service from Medina to Stow to Tallmadge, Akron, Green, N. Canton, Uniontown, Hartville...
I would prefer to work directly with the customer for multiple reasons (better customer relations which will help in several areas like a better relationship, dealing with potential lawn problems, additional services like seeding, aerating; easier for accounting and record keeping; simpler billing, etc.), but like I said I do bill another company for some jobs that I do for them. I would rather that than not have the customer so all is well.
