I mowed 4 accounts on Saturday - with all four saying "My lawn guy hasn't gotten ahold of me this year, and he didn't do my leaf cleanup either." After mowing all of them- I now know why. Bad yards. Bumpy. Lots of obstacles. Rocks sticking out of the ground just high enough to let your blades hit. Ditches with impossible culverts. Overgrown fencerows. Flowers planted in the middle of nowhere- scattered enough that you have to trim all around them. Toys, Swingsets, waterhoses, dog leashes, all left out and the list goes on and on. It is easy to see why they won't call back. Problems yards that are so much hassle that no one in their right mind wants to do them. Now they are my problem- at least until I can replace them with better clients. Thanks to everyone who dropped all their difficult yards!
