No guarantees on a 'perfect' lawn. No such thing. Just do your best - work hard for your customers and the results will speak for themselves.

As for the old guy....as long as you didn't provoke him at all....drop him. Fast.
I have only been verbally abused once, by a snow customer, and that was the last I saw of him. Wiped him from my Quickbooks.

I don't understand why the guy got all excited about a couple of weeds... they could easily be spot sprayed or even pulled...
usually there is a REASON to get upset about something...
Besides, the perfect lawn concept only applies to retired people who spend lots of time puttering with it...
