I am so psyched Question. Generally speaking, when does the season 'begin'? I usually always went by when my lawn 'looked' too long. The customer asked me when it begins and I didn't have a real great answer..."well let me go look at your place and evaluate everything and I will call you back in a day or 2: is what I said. I got him for the grass cutting, and some trimming and blowing off the drive but how do I sell him on a spring dethatch? How do I charge? Triple the cut/trim price? What do I do with the thatch after it is collected with the lawn sweeper? I think I can leave it to be burned but not 100% sure yet. Any advice? The property is about 1 1/2 acres but is certainly not all lawn.
