I have ended up with a commercial property at an EXTREMELY busy intersection in my town. I've been lurking on here for a couple of years and have gained a wealth of information from ya'll. The property is about 1/2 to 3/4 of an acre of bermuda and weeds. It is irrigated in three zones that encompass about a 20 or 30 ft area surrounding the building and a few other areas nears some walkways. The lawn is in full sun with no trees. Corporate is not willing to pay for ANY chemical treatment and I have to really work to convince them to pay for any significant services beyond the weekly mow. I am actually paid by a maintenance service company out of state and not the actual corporation. The property is a specialty retailer that has been around forever and everyone has been there. The intersection is the junction of a five lane thoroughfare and the on / off ramps of an interstate. Traffic backs up there every morning and evening. I have seen it take over 10 minutes to get through this area at rush hour. It has a very high traffic count it the red light is a long one. I had begun to think about whether or not I should be trying to take better advantage of this property's location. I had wondered if it might be a good idea to offer the company to pay for chemical treatments out of my own pocket in exchange for them allowing me to put a sign by the road. Or, if they balk too much at that, I thought about (be gentle) only charging them as much to mow as the chemical company would charge me for the treatments, or maybe doing the whole shooting match for free. I would make a point to really doll the thing up and probably focus on putting a very nice stripe in it. I have no idea if people actually do this sort of thing or if it is a stupid idea. I welcome any suggestions. This my first year in business and I've already paid off all my equipment (used z-force 50", used trimmer, used trailer, etc) I have 13 accounts total which nets me $300-$400 per week. I think I could upgrade to commercial equipment if I needed too. I don't have any business related debt and I have good help ready if needed. I mow part-time. I have insurance. I would appreciate genuine advice / feedback. TIA!!!
