Contract Question

I am going to offer contracts this year and I was wondering how you guys address weekly mowing? Especially for the dry months when some lawns don't need mowing every week.

Any suggestions would be a big help

I do it every week and when it gets hot and it slows down i mow at my discretion, we usually average 32 -35 weeks of mowing here and thats what i base my contracts off of

options you can do:

1. charge per cut, so if it doesn't need mowing you don't charge
2. charge per season average cuts: can still make money
3. charge every week: you still charge even though it doesn't need

I personally charge per cut. I would lose a lot of customers if I tried to charge them even if it didn't need it or I didn't do it

Thanks Guys. You helped out alot. This is the first year I am thinking of doing this. I am kinda sorry I brought it up to my customers. I was trying to make even mothly payments for me and them so we can both budget.

if i was you i would go to several commercial jobs and get a set of specs from them to bid their job and you can create your own!
