I don't take on new customers that want every other week cutting anymore. I do have a few veteran people who I've worked for for years that I will cut eow, but I get paid properly for these accounts and I don't mind. New customers are all weekly. Current customers that ask for eow mowing are told no. I do not mind skipping an account in a dry week, but that account remains a weekly account after the skipped week. There are very few lawns that really only need it eow. Mostly, people who want it eow are just cheap and don't want to pay you for proper regular mowing. If you do take an eow account, most likely you are going to be busting your butt eow to make it look nice. Mowing twice, more cleanup, more wear and tear on the equipment. And chances are, you aren't getting paid properly. That means you are screwing yourself to please a customer that doesn't want to pay for proper mowing, and whose motivation is to save some $$ not having it mowed weekly. I understand that some of the newbies need to take these kind of accounts to just get work. If so, make sure you charge properly. Make sure they understand that extra length and extra time spent mowing will get extra charges. Make sure you are getting paid properly for your work. Don't get screwed out of your time and $$ just to have work. Outline for them exactly what you will be doing, how often, and for how much. And don't let them dictate to you further delays. It's your business, be the boss.
