i have 2 customers, one has a small area of turf, surrounded by burning bush, i can get back there with the mower, so i weed wack the area. the bushes are now so overgrown, i can't get through without scratching the hell out of my arms and face. i told her we would have some time to trim the shrubbery, i can give her a price for the whole property, or just the shrubbery blocking the small turf area. she said she don't want the rest of the property trimmed, but if that area is stopping me from getting through, i have "permission" to trim them, for my convenience. the other client has low hanging limbs, and some freakin bush with thorns 2 inches long, same thing, i can't mow under or around them. both clients feel that since it's stopping me from doing my job, i should trim/prune at my own expense. for now, i just work around it, i aint doin it if they aint paying. shouldn't the client be responsible for maintaining a reasonably safe work area?
