How do you guys get around the problem of customers who want to TELL YOU when the lawn needs cutting? If it's not really long they want you to skip it till next week. During dryer season they don't want to pay for the service if the grass is not growing 4" per week. How do you get it across to them that this is your livelyhood and you count on the income throughout the ENTIRE season, not just part of the season. I have several like this. I have tried to explain to them that their price is really too low for the time it takes me in the spring BUT evens out in the dry summer when it doesn't take me as long. They don't want formal contracts and won't accept double charges every other week. Dropping them is currently not an option as this is only my second full time year and am still building a client base. I love this site. It is addictive. Been reading it for over a year but am just now posting.
