What's your opinion on every other week customers an how to you handle pricing them. I often thought about dumping them, more trouble keeping track of than its worth

I charge more for bimonthly customers. It is a pain in the behind. I try hard not to take any on.

Charge $10 more than weekly, just because you may have to double cut. I don't mind biweekly customers. I put them on schedule just like any other customer.

Those people I never really here from. Plus I'm getting more to cut their grass. I just cut them every 14 days.

Now the ones that Fertilize. those are a pain, I just tell them I gotta do it every week. But the crappy yards. they usually ain't that bad

Its easier/cheaper for them, harder for you.

I cut thier lawns on my terms, not theirs.

Twelve dollars more and no raking/bagging/double-cutting. If there are too many clippings then I'm not mowing often enough.

We charge a $5.00 sur-charge, thinking of increasing it, but we only have 2 customers like this. In terms of dispersing clippings we only do a quick walk around which on a normal mowed weekly lawn takes care of everything, but on every other week mowings still leaves a few areas, the service is the same and takes the same amount of time, its just a scheduling headache.
