Thanks in advance, asking because I got my lawn maintenance skills down, really focusing on my business management skills.
My customers are not on contract i bill at the end of every month and wen it comes to weeding or any other work i have about 15 clients i just do it if it needs to be done and bill them for it because they just want there properties to look nice and then the rest i have to ask if they wwould lik work done next year im gonna get into a contract with my customers.

Try an add on Craigslist. When I was looking to work with someone in lawn care that's the first place I looked.

Ok yes I am on the same boat right now. I sm also looking to get my costumers on contract, I feel that It would be so much easier. Are you going to push it on all your customers, is that going to be your only option. What if some of your customers are not willing to do that?

Yea I tried that one day. And about 2-3 minutes after I posted that ad up, I recieved 2 calls just that quick. But for some strange reason I don't feel safe about that. It's hard to trust anybody these days. Everytime you turn on the news you see killing going on.

Maybe I'll try that once again......
