i never heard of discounting weekly services just because they are weekly and most charge more for bi-weekly.

it is not worth putting someone in your schedule for two visits per month unless they pay for it.

you need to sell a seasonal package that includes the mowing, blowing, edging, spring & fall clean ups and shrub trimming.

add up all those services and divide by the amount of service months and viola, you have steady monthly income and work to do every week.
when the grass slows down and you don't need to mow you can trim some shrubs that need it or edge some beds or something because there is always something to do.
plus you will be Keeping up with things better and never having to ever do too much of any one thing.
shrubs grow a different paces and don't all need to be trimmed at the same time unless they are all let go and over grown.

all these people you work for have to have shrubs and flower beds to some degree and if they will pay you to cut their lawn i am sure if you put together a nice package deal for it all it would ensure they never have to come up with too much money because it is all spread out and you will have more income as well as your monthly bottom line will be more consistent.
