    i just recently started to charge a extra $10 per cut for yards that were mostly weeds. i use the excuse that the weeds were harder on my mower and the dust was bad to breath in. its also an incentive for them to get a sod job done. does any one here charge extra to cut weed propertys?

    All my properties are a mix of weeds and grass, I'd be out of business. Fescue plus whatever blows in from miles of fields and farms in this area. Even the best maintained lawns eventually get the mix. Hard to control mother nature.
