    1) I wouldnt mow a lawn only once a month unless it was to help a disabled vet or something or two unless it was a big area and cost was $5-6000 a cut.
    2) If your charging $40.00 a month for one cut then it would be $80.00 a cut for two.... why would you give a discount?
    3) I only do lawns every week or every 10 days. If they want it cut bi-weekly then add extra.

    example- $40weekly $47.50 -10 days- $60.00 Bi-weekly

    Not sure how 40/week turns into 60/bi weekly it would be 80/bi weekly at least for me maybe 60/ ten days.

    I have customers who prefer bi-weekly mowing but they understand that during peak growth periods it gets cut more frequently. I dictate my terms to my customers, not the other way around.

    a lawn is the same price no matter what equipment it takes etc. Its quality that counts and makes prices different. I do not do bi-weekly lawns but if i did i would charge 50% more if it didnt need to bed bagged or blow the clumps out...

    I am having so many bi-weekly requests this year. New comers, and old ones wanting to switch to bi-weekly. What a PITA. :hammerhead:

    This is what explain to potential customers in a polite and professional way. Prevents a lot of problems down the road.
