I had an account last year in which the client was friends and neighbors with one of longtime accounts. The lawn was in extremely poor shape and created more dust than all my weeks accounts combined. It wasn't a fun nor profitable lawn to cut but I sort of felt obligated, since it was my customers best friend. Luckily last summer the husband decided to buy a used ride on mower and cut his own lawn. It was kind of a relief. This spring the women called me to do a spring cleanup and informed me her husband was losing his battle with cancer (40 yr old father of 3). I did the cleanup and was paid by the bed ridden man. He told me that they will need me to take care of the lawn and the outdoor work. I shoke his hand on that. Now three weeks later he passed away. The viewing is scheduled for tonight 4/26 and out of respect I plan on attending. The question is how long do I cut it for free? The people were somewhat hard to contact as it was. I just cant picture myself calling this lady to pick up my money. I had a few ideas: 1) cut the lawn a couple times for free 2) Seed and top the front lawn (kinda small) so it isn't such a dust bowl. Do that for free but charge her for the lawn cutting. Any other ideas and how would you guys do?
