You will be amazed how many people seem to have mower "problems" this time of year when the temps get into the mid 90s ...mowers must only break when it is above 90

Charge them appropriately if you can fit them in and by no means are this people generally a priority or should they be. This time of year my min for a one time honestly is $40 bucks or higher for 4K or smaller lot.

Just signed a couple up for the month of July for 4 cuts when they are on vacation. 5K lot - no shrub trimming or spraying - Cost $60 a cut.

They thought it was high at first but then I explained they are asking me to take time out during one of the hotter months of the year to cut there lawn and once I said that it was like a light had been turned on and no more issue.
