    so they are trying to save a few bucks, and they definitely need it, but they say skip the spring cleanup. you show up for your first lawn cut, and there is stuff all over the lawn. you: #1-drive away, and don't cut the grass. #2-cut the lawn, do a spring cleanup and bill accordingly. #3-clean it up, and don't charge cus "this will make the customer happy?" #4 cut the grass, shoot the garbage all over the place, and drive away.

    Definitely #4, but I'd charge 150% to compensate for extra wear and tear on the equipment

    I don't agree to a mowing contract unless they go for a spring clean-up. It's more work for me, I want to be compensated for it. If they don't like it I don't mow!!!!

    #1 here. If they don't want to spend the cash then they better clean it before I'm turning on my blades.

    if it is a small mess a few branches etc toss them to the side and mow
    if it is a full blown mess just keep driving
