All these clients lawns are vacation property's and are probley on a biweekly service. I don't know the price pre client but at $30 pre lawn twice a month is only $720. And we only maybe 3 1/2 months of service left this year. And comes to $2.520. Yes he is trying to get allot for nothing!!
That's absurd. You do ALL the work, he keeps ALL the money? I'd offer based on how many cuts are left for the season. That offer would simply cover his time marketing and closing the sales.
