thats what i was thinking about the whole thing. The casino has along the front by the main road, about 6 12 x 15 areas then a patch on the north side along the building, and a few patches out back. so i dont see why they are doing bad with it.

Unless they are willing to pay for that level of service you are giving the customer permission to be a PITA.

Oh, It could get out of control if you let it. But it's also a very good way to build the customer's confidence in you.

I was mowing the lawn for a local realtor. Maybe two acres with white brick gateposts out in front. He told me "When you trim around the gateposts have your man trim so he doesn't get green on the gateposts." I said "OK". Then he gave me a look like he thought I was brushing him off. So I told him "Ken, I am "the man", it'll be done."
