    Lawnworks,
    It means they can cease service If they want but they cant screw ya for money. It helps when everything is on paper so If sombody says do this or that and it aint on the proposal you can just dig the proposal out and show them or ask them if they could review theirs. Also I take photo copies of the originals and put them in a plastic sleve folder and keep it in the truck so I can pull it out and get what ever info I need of It at any time. People down yonder don't like to get into a contract over their lawn mate. I'm not building their pool for em, I'm just mowing their lawns. Commercial dose require a contract though.

    As for layout, Here is a REALY rough idea for you.

    pinnacle are using word or works or what?? Looks alot better than mine. My logo was "Where the green grass grows..." but I think I want a more mature logo or possibly just skip the logo.

    Pinnacle, I like the template style. For whatever it's worth this is a contract that I've been using, however I never want to feel locked into this particular format. The more I read about how other people are performing their businesses, the more I keep considering on changing my contract. Life is full of changes, eh?
