Again I know this has been discussed but Icouldnt find exactly what I was looking for in the search. I am looking into getting info as to how you set up your mowing contracts. I am specifically referring to those in the north where the need for mowing varies greatly throughout the season. Spring is often, fall is slow, summer is slow too. I have been told in my area (S.E. Wisconsin) 26 cuts is a standard but I am seeing our season more like 28 -30 weeks long. How can it average to only 26cuts? I personally would rather set an account up for 30 cuts and give a refund at the end of the year so i dont have to explain my extra cuts? Am I wrong in assuming the customer would rather know what they are getting up front and be happy to take some money back at the end of the year? Also do you factor in leaf removal as an extra automatically because I would guess if they hire you for the mowing they will hire you to clean the leaves off too? I just am looking into how to set up my first accounts over this winter.
