I don't feel it's too much. Slobs should not be rewarded for taking their good old time getting the grass cut. Pay up.
For me, it's personal since I'm watching my own neighborhood go this way.
Some customers will pay and some will not. I roll the dice and toss out a large figure. If they take it, I'm paid for my efforts. If not, I just carry on with my regular lawns without missing a beat.
I hear all that, and I'm with ya there. It seems my neighborhood is heading that way too.
