    Do you trim around all obstacles, every tree and every landscape bed every week on every property?

    I trim as needed. Not going to waste time and money trimming around something that could go another week just to say that I did.

    Same thing with edging, about half my lawns DO need edged every week, but the rest get done every other week.

    I take it that you have never had those 6 7 and 8:00 phone calls

    For the most part i trim every time but depending on the week(rain, temp. ect.) it may not need it too bad so i will occasionally not.

    The customer will ALWAYS notice what you do not do. No point in giving them a reason to look at other crews work or talk with their neighbors. Do good quality each and every time on every property--make no excuses.
