    for lawn service

    Mine is $5.00 discount if monthly service is paid by the 7th of the month
    gives them a reason to pay quickly

    "Not responsibile for acts of God" in my annual contract. People think a hurricane blows through and I am going to clean it up for nothing but the monthly fee.

    " we are not responsible for acts of god. rain is an act of god. if it rains on your scheduled day, we will make every effort to service your property within the next 3 days. if it is not possible to service your property within 3 days, your service will resume on your next regularly shceduled day. if the grass at this point needs to be double, or tripple cut, there will be a surcharge for this visit." i like that one, and this one:" any payment not recieved by the due date will be considered late. service will be cancelled, and late fees will be applied."

    Coastal you got me ... I have that too

    here's one

    . The price is based on services described in the Service Agreement. Owner (s) agrees to negotiate a reasonable price adjustment with FANTASY LAWNS INC. for any changes in those

    NNN for Bobby here's another

    Upon Cancellation Compensation for All Services will be pro-rated in conjunction with the work performed between First & Last Day of Service Agreement adjustments submitted with final bill.
