Just wondering how you deal with customers who leave gobs of Dog bombs in the back yard?

I assume you dont cut over it and blast it all over your shoes and mower. I suppose this question also covers kids toys and other obstructions.

I roll right over it.

My customers know I come at the same time on the same days and they know I'm not contracted to pick up their dog poop.

I don't touch it.

If it's excessive, I'll mow around it and really leave a message.

Don't have to do that more than once or twice and d it's clean the next time you come.

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in GREEN PASTURES

We just mow over it and ignore it. Any crap on the wheels will wear off quickly enough.

I will go around it if it is a chronic problem. Some times they will complain to the strata boss that I am missing patches of grass and the dog owner always catches the flack for not picking up after their dogs, always.

Hi Slatherd,

We recently had a talk with one of our clients that now offers a dog clean up service in addition to lawn maintenance.
