    I already have my answer for this question just figured i would see what you guys have to say. Have a customer who has a large property complaining about her bill saying that her housekeeper said that our crew didn't mow the property a certain date. Mowing crew marks off each place during route and you guessed it its marked done. So whats your strategy for resolving this isue?????? No charge or charge???

    How long ago was the disputed date? How long was the housekeeper there? Is there a chance that she was gone by the time your crew came? I would have a chat with the crew and explain what is going on to see if they fess up. I would also talk to the client and find out when & how long the housekeeper was there. I would think the homeowner would notice if the property was mowed or not though.

    I have two lawns that I cut next door to each other, one at 2" and one at 3". A driveway sepperates the 2, and from the sidewalk looking at either one you cannot tell the difference in height, only if you look straight down into it you can see the dirt is a little closer on the 2" lawn (and it has more of a weed problem, and is a thinner lawn, but thats because of the cut height).

    I cannot see why your cut would look any different regardless of what the neightbors cut at. If it is even, trimmed, and edged, the height should be of little significance.

    Tell that customer that you definitely mowed on that date, and, that you didn't recall seeing the housekeeper either...
