    Dump a load of clipping on their drive way (returning their grass you cut) then drive by in the middle of the night and throw balloons filled with round-up on their lawn. Repeat weekly until the bill is paid.

    All the hard work you all do??? Every one on this site should sign up for FREE on www.clientcritic.com and post them. Then go door to door and tell them, if you pay me, then I will make sure your name says resolved on Client Critic. Use our site to put pressure on those nonpayers and start getting your money!
  5. Put a sign on your truck and park it on the street in front the house.....This clients is 60 days over due one their lawn care bill.....embarrassing the person will get you a check. The street is open to the public. What you can't say is this guy is a A** hole and won't pay or refuses to pay, or is a cheap a**.... You could be sued for that.

    But you can say it on www.clientcritic.com... as long as what you post is true, it is not slander... but you just can't curse or use defamatory language...

    in the mean time i signed up at client critic, hope everybody does!
    hope it spreads and if i can get other companys from my area to sign up that would help a lot.
    the stupid low ballers can take the crappy clients that dont pay and we'll take care of the good ones at a fair price.
