    The Apt complex I do is in the process of cleaning out a tree row that is real overgrown with weeds/trash/rocks, you name it. It is waist high full of junk. The manager says that they will get it in good condition so I can mow or they might mulch the area. Until then it will have to be trimmed to prevent this from happening again (the buildup of weeds and trash)

    The tree row is 425'x20'. They have it about 1/8 clear. Nothing I can mow just trim down with trimmer. It took my trimmer guy an extra 7-10 min just to hit the "new area" with the trimmer. By the time this is done I am looking at 60-80 min of extra time if I can not mow and do to the trees about 30-40 min if I could mow.

    How would you guys/gals handle this? How much of an increase?

    My Service agreement states:
    The above prices are based on the current state of the turf and/or landscape, any future changes will cause the price to be adjusted accordingly and shall be done in writing

    Thanks for your input:)

    If they signed your contract then your covered. Tack on $60-80 extra until it's taken care of.
