We also offer licensed irrigation checks and chemical applications including pest, fertilization, and weed control which are included in the contract.
We maintain their lawn, trim, prune, treat fungus, pests, make irrigation repairs (billed hourly plus materials), apply mulch twice a year or as needed for a new plan. It works great, gives us "full run" on their property, and keeps my install, and their property, so much better than the neighbor. Clients range from 4,700 to 10,200 annually and are all residential in the Austin metro area.
Granted, I also have a personal interest in their property since I designed and built it, so the sell was easier than a contractor from off the street, but that is the reason I started my business...to make a GOOD name for local contractors.
What size lawn do the higher end monthly billing range from? This seems like a great contract to be in because they won't have to worry about a single thing in their yard. When you say bill them for material and hours is that just for the mulching and irrigation?
