I don't know how everyone out there is doing but do you fight the KNEW guy under bidding trying to jump in on your customers?<br>Have only lost one in the past 4 years but it still makes me nervous this time of year, usally get upset over nothing and gain work

43rd parallel.<p>A typical season includes 2 cuts in April and 1 or 2 in November.<p>I might be pushing it a little. I charge for 28 weeks. A lot of guys do 26 here.

This year and last have been great, but some years you don't get your clean-ups done before you have to plow and that sucks.

What is the season in North Carolina? I was thinking about charging a monthly price based upon the seson. So if I do 3 cuts a month durning the summer and only 1 or 2 overall cuts in the winter then the customer has a consistan price throughout the year...<p>Does that make sence?
