A little quick info. first. I am a part-timer. Solo. I have a full-time job and do lawns on the side. I have in the past had about 12 regulars and have cut it down to 4 regulars that I can get done in one evening when I get off my regular job. All but one pays me by the cutting. The one that does not, options to pay me monthly. They have Bermuda and needless to say after it cools, they really have no grass growth. They have always paid me year round, and I always go once a week. It equals out in my opinion because I don't charge any extra for the leaf clean up and the beds to cleaned of leaves. I just keep cleaning every week and I am pretty much done by the time spring comes around for grass to begin greening up. The reason for such long leaf clean up time is their leaves along with the neighbors leaves continue to fall due to variety of trees and lack of neighbors cleaning. I mostly don't see them except around the first of the month when they pay me. He calls today and says he has not seen me in December and contracted out for the leaves to be removed by another person. And he will see me in the spring when mowing resumes. I called and made it clear that I had been coming and doing as usual. He said o.k., but I somehow don't think he believed me. My biggest problem, is I just don't think he believes me. Opinions.
