    Just wondering, I have never put any of my accounts on a Season contract with a monthly price. Just wondering if I am doing this right....

    Ex: Mow lawn X amount of times per month, per season
    Spring cleanup X amount
    Mulch X amount
    Ext.. X amount

    Add up everything and devied by the season and get your monthly price. Is this the correct way to do this?

    That is how I did a few of mine:
    mowing x's/season
    plowing x's/season
    spring/fall clean-ups
    bed maintenance

    add it all up and divide by 12.

    Yes... but for snow protect yourself with a cap on total snowfall. I ended up working for peanuts on my contract snow accounts. They got more than their monies worth in less than 3 weeks of record snow. :hammerhead: Glad I only signed up 3 under that plan.

    Clearly spell out details what is included what is not.

    For snow I do a slot amount like so much for 2"-6", 7"-11" and so on. I bill for total accum in a 24hr. period. You my want to check Plowsite for more info.
