    Do most of you charge if you have to double cut to disperse grass or is that just a given this time if year?
    Thanks for your input

    I normally don't charge for double cutting a lawn , unless the customer delayed me in cutting the lawn, construction, painting, etc.. Then I would charge for collecting the clippings or a 1.5 x's charge.

    Depends why I am double cutting, if it's because I'm behind schedule or the grass is just growing faster then "no" I won't charge them, but if it's because they told me to skip a cut or if for some other reason was unable to cut the lawn due to the customer, yes I will charge them extra.

    Same here. Most of the time, it is MY responsibility.

    There have been times I SHOULD have in the past, but I don't recall ever doing it. I assume people wouldn't react maturely to the idea of it. The people who have their act together usually don't have lawns I have to double cut anyway.
