But if I did theirs, I would have to mow every other one in that neighborhood every week in the winter.
Hard to lose good customers but that is a unrealistic goal unless the price had already been figured accordingly and even then it is hard to price because you are taking the time to get everything ready for just a couple of yards during the off week.

I have the same customer issue in neighborhoods where I have several, you did the right thing by not making a exception because then chances are everyone else would of felt they had either been short changed or would of felt entitled to discount.

Good point about EOW only being 9 months away. These year it seems to be going by way to fast.
