well you can move away from clients you can't control and I'll behind you to gladly work for them.
sure I cut most at a healthy 3" or higher height. sure most ask me my opinion and take my advice and let me do what I know is the proper thing for there property.
but my point is I don't try and control the client. it's not a my way or the high way business. I give my recommendation and if they don't take it I ultimately do what they want. they are the ones who sign my checks.
in this business I see it somewhat as I am the employee and they are the boss. but you guys are free to run your business however you want.
