    This question is aimed at those who employ mowing crews. Do you monitor your employees' work and if so how do you go about this? Do you just rely on customer feedback or do you get out there and do spot checks to see for yourself if the work is up to standard?

    I always try to check up on them several times a day. I don't really have a set schedule, depends on whats happening that day.

    Follow up n spot check is a MUST

    It also allows you to recognize the good work done .... when you come back n can say .... wow I noticed that work as so n so's ...... as well as time to give help in positive way in improvement .... when things don't look so good ... can come back to the foreman .... so they can pass it down to the employee running that job

    Hold the foreman responsible .... so he keeps up on the detail stuff
