    When writing a contract for commercial accounts should I include things such as Spring/Fall Cleanup and leaf removal in the contract? Or should I leave these as options which may be selected by the owner.

    More simply......make the contract from March 1 to November 31 and include everything. Or make the contract from April 1 to October 31 and only include mowing, edging, etc. while leaving spring/fall clean up, leaves, etc. as options.

    I'm concerned if they are left as options I'll end up
    clearing sticks, etc. anyway.

    Thanks for any advice.

    If some could email any sample commercial contracts I would be forever greatful.

    Thank again,
    John
