    I just make weekly mows sign the estimate I give them. It just shows they agree to the price. This way I dont have to fight with them if they want out and I can get out if the become true PITA's. I know some lock in for the year but I think If you get a bad account your stuck there for the year if you have a contract. I give 2 weeks to pay for last months mowings. So if your locked into them you gotta mow them and you could be waiting for several weeks to maybe get paid. In that situation I can get out. A phone call after 2 weeks late and if your 2 months late your gone. I know it sounds like a long time but it works for me.
