    Any demand for it? How do you charge? I would imagine include it in the original price but up that price first.

    to be honest with you the only thing i know how to do is stripe and i think that is the easiest way to cut a lawn. I dont know of any other techniques that are faster then striping it

    If we mow a lawn, the lawn is striped. That's all we do. We've had a couple of times when the grass didn't need to be cut, but the customer wanted stripes so we ran the mowers over it anyway just for striping, but other than that, it's just the way we mow.

    just think of that as your lawnsized business card. Thats the BEST promotion you can give, a visible example of the quality that you have to offer for the entire neighborhood to see.

    Mowing = striping! It is a regular service here for every LCO. No demand, and no complaints if not striped, but compliments when done.
