So far as an old guy and first season cutting lawns I have had fairly good luck, enough that I would like to try as full time next season and have 1 or 2 employees. Most of my customers like the option of E-Transfer and have been great for paying that way but hey there are always the exceptions and although they are regular customers they try diligently to strech out biweekly to monthly cutting for same price when the lawns are out of control by the time they want you back again. I have drawn up a seasonal contract for next years season 2018 covering some minor issues I have encountered so people know and understand my terms up front. Really nothing major. I know the seasonal snow removal services here that have the monster farm tractors with equally monster blowers attached have seasonal contracts and clients pay up front for the entire winter season ahead. My question is, does anyone on lawn site have the same type of up front seasonal total payment for the grass cutting season? Is it hard to get clients to agree to pay up front for the season even if you point out the benefits to them? Any advice on this would be great good or bad. Thank You all for your past comments and likes. It's very encouraging.
