Mowing height is more important than stripping.

All depends on the turf heights and species and health. Healthier lawns that receive fert treatments can be cut lower such as a 3.0. Turf that is not treated can generate weeds if it is cut to short

When did spring clean ups start including weed beds and trimming shrubs? These were always extras when I have done them in the past. I had a lady get 2.5 yds black mulch installed. (Edge beds, weed em) and a spring clean up (3 guys an hour) $300. She said it was steep, we should of also weeded her rock area by the pool, which is a 10x30 area with 1-3" riverbed and trim the shrubs. I had another lady want a spring clean up and thought we were gonna weed her entire property for the price. In the past spring cleanups have included removing all leaves and debris from lawn and bed areas and a first cut with edging. Has something changed or am I off?
