    I was wondernig who gives a sigle cut estimate and who give an estimate for the whole year? What seems to get the best results?

    I've heard of some companies charging a flat yearly rate regardless of how many times it's mowed. Does anyone do that here?

    Thanks for any info.

    I charge per cut but also only have yr round customers. I avoid "one timers" absolutely if that is what you are considering.
