Is it possible to dictate to clients YOUR WAY or the highway. If application clients insist on low mowing and poor maintenance practices such as daily over watering at the wrong times of day I really donít want them as clients.

This could be a marketing disaster beyond accounts I already mow for....? I really donít want my application tag on lawns that are scalp mowed and the sprinklers come on 3 times a day plus daily in the afternoon and evening.
I tell them up front verbally and in writing if my suggestions are not followed then success may not happen. Write up a suggestion/instruction list and send it with the 1st bill. That way when things don't work out then at least you can say "I told you so" in a professional manner of course. At the end of the instructions I leave them with this quote, "If you repeat the same things over and expect different results then that would be the definition of _____. You can fill in the blank.
