    I have been in the business for 8 years and in most cases, repair any lawn damage that was done while plowing in the spring.

    This year in Connecticut there has been much much more snow than we are used to. Now that we have had a few days off a temps warmed up a little bit, I have had a few calls about lawn damage and patio damage.

    Now this is all stuff that some of you may be used to all the time...but we very very rarely have to move snow in residential driveways with a skid steer or shovel off roofs because buildings are collapsing.

    So back to my question...how much do you repair in the spring for free, or do you charge for it? Lawns, Belgium block, plants, patios???

    Any information would be appreciated!

    How about it im moving a pile of snow with a skid steer and the customer is standing there telling me there is nothing under the pile but pavement. Then I find out there are a few shrubs that are in my bucket

    If i break it, its replaced at my expense. I see your side of it dreich, but you could of avoided it by inspecting it before hand. It would be a shame to lose a contract over a couple shrubs that you refuse to return to there spot. I would communicate with the customer on that one.
