When i was in business before I always charged by the week and it worked out well for the most part but I am getting back into the business now and I was thinking about charging by the month so even if someone tells me not to cut because the grass isn't growing etc I can still get paid. Also It helps to even out the extra time we spend in the spring when the grass is growing faster and cutting takes longer. OR charge by the week and visit the property even if it doesn't need to be cut and clean up the beds/yard , pull weeds etc during the time slot alotted for cutting and bill it as a regular cut? These are a mix of upper middle class and high end accounts if that makes a difference. What do you guys think?
