This will be my first year in business and I'm going to chance it by only accepting payments this way. I have 15 full maintenance accounts (mow,trim, fert, seed, aerate, 2 cleanups) lined up that have agreed to the 12 month payments. I just have to get the contracts written up by March 1. I'm even making the 3 family members sign the papers! I think this is the only way to go. I have a full time job working grounds crew for a Country Club but it's seasonal as well so I'm trying to make sure I still have enough money coming in during the winter. I can't be relying on snow. I bought a 2 stage snow blower this fall and haven't even got to put gas in it yet.
