I don't do the whole you will get 36-42 cuts. No, you get 38 and if more are needed and you want it done, you pay for it.

We have no chance of charging for extra mows and we visit most of our accounts 50 times a year. I don't think we ever had a complaint that we should have mowed when we just picked up trash and blew off the parking lot. The only thing that can hurt you if weeds spring up in early spring. Grass dont' need mowing but what about the weeds? What do you do?

Don't have that problem as all properties have healthy turf and have Chem apps done.
