One of my jobs is to maintain a Childcare center. Currently I do monthly lawn service and an occasional odd job, such as trimming hedges, and spreading wood chips in the play areas. Well, one of the wood chip covered playgrounds has a bunch of prickly weeds growing up through the wood chips, and the Director keeps telling me to spray them. I have explained numerous times that I do not have a License to spray, and that even if I did I don't think it would be legal to spray where toddlers are playing (picking up wood chips, etc.). I explained that I do the Lawn, and she can feel free to call someone who is Licensed to spray and get a quote. Today her boss calls me and asks me to spray them. I kindly explained that I do not have a license to spray, why I wouldn't want to spray if I did have a license, and that it is not part of the price for monthly maintenance. Furthermore I offered that I would dig out approximately 9" of wood chips, install a plastic or rubber membrane to eliminate the weeds, and fill the box with new wood chips (all for a fee of course). Sorry I just needed to vent to some people who can understand how I feel. These weeds are a real eyesore and I think the customer feels it is included in the monthly charge. (No contract-they dont do contracts) I did agree to weed the flower and hedge beds, but never the playground. What would you do?
