Maybe send the customer a copy of TURF then he may realize that he made a mistake and when he calls you you raise the price and everybody wins

This is a very competitive field to be in and the tactics some company's use I don't agree with. What ever happend to upfront fair competition? hasn't been around for long time, seems to be do whatever it takes. Learn from your mistakes and move on. Oh and your mistake was not signing them to a contract! As for mowing the only mistake in mowing is cutting to low. Sure there are several way's to cut a lawn to make it look better but the grass doesn't care, it grows anyway.

Yeah, have to agree with you on that one. Mowing to many times in same direction with heavy mower will leave ruts and pissed off customers. I know I have picked up several lawns from other company's who do the same o same o every week. Rotate your mowing pattern every week!
