    Ok heres the deal , I am new to the whole year round contract concept, however the most I can get anyone to sign is like a 6 or 7 month contract because they all ask me if they sign a year round contract then what the heck will I be doing in the winter and they all say they would rather just sign a 6 or 7 month, WHAT am I doing wrong and how can I word it and or land a 12 month contract, someone Please help me, Thank you

    Your season is only 6-7 months long down there?

    Did you explain to them that they are spreading the payments over a 12 month period for the contracted work?

    Well how exactly does that work, if I go and look at a yard and I have to have $45.00 a week to maintain it then how do I figure that into a 12 month ?? thanks for the help lawnscapes I appreciate it man

    How many cuts do you get down there per year?

    We get approximately 30... so 30 x $50 = $1500

    $1500/12 = $125 per month

    Understand?
