    Just going out this upcoming season to begin mowing after 23 years in the chemical appliction business. Do you use contracts or do you use an agreement of getting paid for each mow? For those who have contracts....what do you do if you cant mow for a few weeks when there are dry conditions and the grass isnt growing?

    I base all of my annual paying contracts that the grass will be cut each 7-10 days dependent on weather and grass growth. I also explain that the amount is figured on 36 mows per season and that if I only mow 30 then it is my gain but if I have to mow 40 it is their gain. I have not had any problems as of yet. Good Luick to you
