One thing that irritated me was I had one account that this situation sort of reminded me of. I don't service it any longer, but it was a fairly easy yard, other than the fact that the house was built on the side of a hill. All the grass was flat and all the grass area was in front of the house. The driveway was at the top of the hill above the house and there was like 80 plus steps to get from the front to the back of the house where the driveway was...Anyway, the only weed eating I had to do was like a minute worth along some rocks by the water the house was near. Then like a minute of weed eating directly against the house. That was it other than one area up by the road at the other end of the drive. So, everything is fine...then they decide they want to make a raised garden. I have to start trimming around that. Then they have a kid and they get a kid play set...Have to start trimming around that. Then they get another swing set. Have to start trimming around that. Then they added a sand box...I was like OMG people WTH...Then toys start appearing in the yard. I finally asked for $5 more per visit, just to basically prove a point. It still really wasn't worth it. I really hated that property. The only way to get from the road to the grass area was to go down the street and down a long driveway shared by several neighbors. At some point though all the steps had to be walked so I could blow them off. Talk about a pain. They were nice customers though. Really the only reason I kept them as long as I did.
