    $100 each Christmas since 1995. Got $50 that year. Most of the others... between $25 and $60, most around $40. During the year, about $25 is the best. Most do not tip. The rest tip at Christmas.

    The best informational tip: Lawnsite

    The best monetary tip: I think was around $50 , most people don't tip around here. They think that they are getting charged enough I guess.

    The best edible tip.. Now thats where my tips come in, I had this old lady who every week when I was done cutting would have home made pepperoni rolls, cookies, sandwich and a cold pop there for me. She would just say hello I know your in a hurry but you need to eat.. She was great!

    awm, are you saying you got a ZTR as a tip? WOW

    Best one we ever got was $50 money wise.

    Best tip was finding Lawnicure about 2 years ago, which led to Hall of Forums and then to Lawnsite.com
