    I dont like to refer to it as "Sneaking It In There". That makes us sound unscrupulous.

    I like to call it "Sound Business Practices". If we know that we need to get $600 for a Fall Clean-Up but they are well below the norm on say Spring Clean-Up, Shearing, etc. I like to add a portion of the FCU into those other areas that have a buffer.

    This is easier on their wallet too by spreading it out over the length of the season. If you tally everything up and divide it over a 10 month season, this may be an easier way for them to budget as well.

    Best of Luck!

    there is not much fall cleanup for my regulars. i mulch every wk and only chg more if it actuaaly takes longer. now callins
    pay anywhere from 35 - 100 an hr depending on the job.
    by the way they dont know their paying a hundred an hr.
    the just know that a job they were dreading is done better than they could have done it.lot o people just dont want that
    hot nasty hard wk. i dont either unless the pays right.
    4-5 of them kinda hrs is a whole day for me.

    awm: I hear that on cleanups being hard on you. Lately when i bid new cleanups if i think it's close to 6 hrs or so, i bid for whole day because after 6 hrs too late to start another cleanup, i like to finish cleanup the day i start or the wind blows everything back where you did already, the crew is usually wiped
