    What do you guys include in your lawn care "packages"? As of now all I really include is mowing, trimming, edging, and drive way blow-offs. What else do ya'll recomend?

    ONe part of my weekly mowing service that has helped me get a few accounts is. -Weed control in the sidewalks and drives.
    Those nasty weeds that keep growing through the cracks. I just trim them off or spray them with roundup. It really makes a difference in the overall appearance having them cleaned up.
    (Yes, I am licensed to spray)

    How do you charge for spraying the Roundup? Is it included in the price of the mowing...or do you charge additionally for each time you must spray?

    It's part of my standard mowing service. Only takes a couple minutes. I just take a small hand pump sprayer with me about once a month. Otherwise I will hit it with the trimmer. a few seconds here or there isn't much but the results can really show up.
