    part I
    what percentage of work, or time... do you use as a gauge for price increase?

    you cut a house weekly, and you show up.. and see they added sod around the pool, or driveway, or dog pen, etc.
    or add beds that you have to now turn and cultivate, etc.

    part II
    you cut a house weekly, then they say they would like to go to a bi-weekly program. what is the increase % of the cut.

    part 1: based on time

    part 2: my basic service company charges 30% extra and if it cannot be done fairly easily we require a move back to weekly or find another LCO

    My full service company refers the people to my basic company if it would be a good match or refers them to another LCO if not.
