    You should loose the I am not responsible for items left on lawn, for the simple fact that you are.

    People want to pay for "responsible" people, customers do not want, I am not responsible clauses shoved down their faces. people higher lawn care people so not to not be bothered by their lawn and to free their time if you see crap in the lawn either pick it up or skip the lawn. That is what you are charging them for,(you are charging extreme top dollar right?) Also if you ran over a yard ornament or a kids toy or caused other property damage why don't you want to be responsible for it.?

    I did not state that I would not be responsible for damaged property that was caused by flying material. I am stating that I am not responible if something is clearly not visible and gets damaged.
    Still think I should take it out?

    that is just my opinion, But it doesen't mean what you have is wrong. Over the years I have run over hidden sprinkler heads that haven't retracted all the way. squirt guns ect. I always have repaired and replaced. It is just the right thing to do. It is also just 1 way of dozens of ways to stand out from the other guy that they could have working their. Their are going to be other opinions comming in I am courious to see how many agree with me. Looks like someone bid on your racks.......
