Try to convince him of seeding with Bermuda then as it has a chance of establishing vs the fescue blend he is wanting to use. If he does not listen to you this time and continues to talk about his grass seed....RUN as he simple does not value your opinion and is wasting your time and his. This customer will never pay for extras and at this rate - he will not have a lawn and will not pay you a fair monthly rate , best case he will pay you to mow his weeds/dust bowl in the summer and then tell you he does not need you in the winter and leave you out to dry.
