    I tried a search for contracts and didnt find much.
    Does anyone one have a simple mowing only contract example
    for me to get some ideas from? Last years drought hurt ,so we are mowing by contract only this year.Customers are ok with idea.
    We are expecting no relief this season from the drought.
    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated . Thanks

    Mike, Iam up in the Brunswick area.Thanks for the reply.
    I have come up with a rough draft,just wanted to see how others word theirs. We have not used contracts in the past,I got sick of hauling mowers around for nothing last summer due to our severe drought.This year they will pay!! Not even enough snow
    to ride the zr this year,whats going on with mother nature?

    northeast - if you want to email me your contract, I'd take a look at it. As well, I'd be happy to show you what we use.

    I am a new member to the site. I am starting my second year in the business and was trying to fine an example of a contract to use or look at to compare. I have about 25 customers and retained them all this year and have picked up a few more new ones.
