I'm just wondering how many of a LCO's clients really care how good a job you do? Do they notice when you put clearly visable stripes down? Do they notice whether or not you trim everything every time you cut the grass. Just today I started cutting a clients lawn. When I arrived at the lawn I noticed that there was some new lawn furniture. No biggie. When I got down by the pier I noticed all of the boats were gone. One of my eyebrows goes up at this point. I started mowing the grass (yes, there will be a point to this story) and glanced at the house. All of the curtains are gone! I ride the Dixie up to the house and look in the window. The house is empty! So being the sharp fellow I am I figure something's wrong here. I go to the next door neighbor's house and ring the bell. He answers the door and I ask him if his next door neighbor has moved. He said "Yes, he had to be out by September 1". I tell him "Thanks" and go to leave. Then he asks me to give him a price on his property for next spring. So I gave him the price and explain some of the things I do which included criss-cross stripeing the lawn next door. He say "You do, I had never noticed". When I pointed the stripes out to him he said "Yes, that does look nice". I have had this happen a few other times too. A couple of people have said not to even bother stripeing because they never even see the yard. They drive and walk right by it and never even look at it. It kinda makes me wonder why I even bother to do a good job sometimes.
