    We do 6 houses right on a golf course, always finding balls in the yard. So I screw with the golfers and throw the balls back on the fairway. ABD36250-76A8-4BAB-A1F0-0EF2982D015D.jpeg

    Many broken windows from being hit by the golf balls? Some homeowners reportedly have gone to plexiglass here.

    Depends how desperate you are for work. But at minimum that is an upcharge.

    Asking them to pick it up before mowing day might last a month before they let it go... leaving you stuck with the added work and frustration.

    I’ve seen 2 broken windows from Golfers, plexiglass/Lexan sounds like a way better idea than glass

    Not a flip flop...but a tennis ball for the dog. Told them I don't mention things like that....if I run over your kid's bike or the swingset I'll let ya know.

    Same...I don't touch trampolines. That way if it collapses and the kids get hurt...i'm not at fault.

    Around here, it better be secured to the ground or your homeowners insurance company will be getting a phone call shortly after that crazy thunderstorm blew the trampoline into the neighbors car! lol
    I assembled a trampoline for a customer that has 4 kids. After their last one was destroyed when it flipped over in the backyard and was broken, I assembled the new one and used trampoline specific securing hardware.

    I'm a licensed structural engineer as well, and each tramp is fully inspected after moving it. LOL

    He claims the 30’s don’t work for him.
