    Oh man, what a pain in the but! Does anyone else have customers that just totally overdue their lawn decorating for EVERY season? I think I am going to start charging extra every time they decorate. I mean these people just scatter things over their whole lawn. It makes it an obstacle course to mow, and just kills the guy weedwacking. :angry:

    If it's excessive, I just mow a big circle around all the junk and don't worry about it. So far no complaints.

    Most of them stay away, keep their distance. People aren't quite sure what to think. Last year a few little kids didn't even want to come up for trick or treating because they were scared.

    We just moved into a new house in the spring, so the new neighbors haven't seen it yet. Some are going to be a bit shocked.

    I have one client that does that, but they are in the lawn in such a way that I have to pull them all out or i cant mow at all.. Pain.... THey have one of those giant blow up dolls of frankinstein that covers one whole section and then hands, and grave stones, etc all over the place.. I just take 5 mins and pull the all out and pile them on the front steps... Then next week have to do it all again... ughhh....
