it's just the lawn furniture i don't get. and why 2 swings?

if you took those 2 things out it would be a piece of cake.

Now since you mentioned it...
In the case with my pictures, I didn't care but I am aware and ready to live up to the consequences for my actions.

Now the customer here sees those pictures, they're going to know who took them.
And if they are not all right with it, he who took the pictures might be out of a job real quick, or worse.
That's why I asked, because I'm not so sure folks here are aware of certain consequences.

So I hope the OP doesn't care, either.
fingers crossedhopefully they won't be scrolling through lawnsite and see this

Or worse??? What do you think could happen? Do you think he could get sued? Just to put that silly nonsense to rest, have you ever heard of "paparazzi?" They take pictures of people and put them on the Internet, magazines, and even on tv. Do you suppose unsuspecting yards have more rights than unsuspecting people???

The better question might be> how short is the half life of a thread? I would say ten posts and the value of an original post is reduced by half or more. While I would not fear legal action from posting such pictures, don't over look BBB complaints, bad word of mouth, and God forbid the dreaded facebook and pinterest bomb that may land in your business lap for taking and posting pictures with derogatory comments. You will likely find that the homeowner loves his yard set up. If you need to ask us what to charge, you are as lost as a heathen in heaven because one mans heaven is another mans hell. I have business associates that could do that lawn in 20 minutes and out but I would need 35 - 40 so how could I be so arrogant as to tell him what he needs to charge to make a good profit. JMHO

you don't ask anyone to change anything if they don't want to. you either cut is as it is and charge accordingly or just pass on the job.

this is one of the problems in lawn care. people don't seem to understand that by them having extra obstacles in their yard means that it takes longer to mow therefore raising the price you will charge them.

you can say ok $75 and if they think that is too high then you can say well i can mow it for $50 if you move that furniture and stuff out of the way before i come to mow it each time. then the ball is in their court. they can either move it, or just pay the extra cost, or not hire you.
