    Just wondering how you deal with customers who leave gobs of Dog bombs in the back yard?

    I assume you dont cut over it and blast it all over your shoes and mower. I suppose this question also covers kids toys and other obstructions.

    I roll right over it.

    My customers know I come at the same time on the same days and they know I'm not contracted to pick up their dog poop.

    I don't touch it.

    If it's excessive, I'll mow around it and really leave a message.

    Don't have to do that more than once or twice and d it's clean the next time you come.

    We just mow over it and ignore it. Any crap on the wheels will wear off quickly enough.

    I will go around it if it is a chronic problem. Some times they will complain to the strata boss that I am missing patches of grass and the dog owner always catches the flack for not picking up after their dogs, always.

    Hi Slatherd,

    We recently had a talk with one of our clients that now offers a dog clean up service in addition to lawn maintenance.
