bobbygedd I totally agree. I bid my lawns based on one cut, trim, blow and once a month edge. I started charging for double cutting cause I look at it this way If someone had to stay and work overtime they want to get paid for it. So do I. It is just a surcharge for when it needs it like in spring growth. I got the idea a few yrs ago when a customer said to me "you should be charging me more if it is taking you longer than you thought." I told him no it is just that in the spring it grows so fast that you have to double/triple cut it to keep it nice. Then he said well extra work means extra pay. (Don't we all wish our customers were like this!) But anyway thanks for the replies everyone.
