    When you measure a property do you include the total area including walks and drives or just grass? i.e. a strip of grass here plus a strip there

    I only charge for what I'm cutting. Just me though.

    I usually measure all but the drive and patio areas. It will not change my bid enough to matter. I have calculated my bids down to the square foot which gives me flexibility with flowerbeds and other non turf areas.

    I include them, because you will have to blow them off- that is time and time is money!
