Hi Greg,

Welcome to our forum!

What's your view as to why you like residential vs commercial customers?

I like residential because I can have many small accounts unlike commercial where I have a few accounts which means if one commercial account drops me it makes a bigger difference. I also like residential because my last commercial account would give me checks and they would bounce with money owed and fees counted it was about 400 dollars it wasn't worth taking her to court so I sent an email to our local chamber of commerce.

To lawn boy business down here is nice but I'm on the coast. There is a lot of lawn company's in jacksonvile some are nice (I've been stuck and they pulled the mower out) and others have tried to take my clients while I was still mowing the property.

On the upside there is plenty of grass and plenty of lawns to mow down here

No pictures it has happened twice in two different areas the same person pulled me out he has a similar route to me the first time it was my fault I went into the ditch to mow and being that I had little gas in the tank it all went away from the gas line so after I refueled the mower sank down a few inches the second time I was mowing a impatient clients lawn after it rained and everything was good until the mower started slowing down and finally stopped with spinning wheels after I got off I found that there was a 20ft of ruts that I just created there was no getting out of that one

How will you handle that lawn in the future? Will you do anything differently? Were you at all concerned the mower might roll?

I Still go through the ditch but my problem was I ran out of gas so the machine had enough time to sink in that and stopping caused me to lose momentum. I wasn't concerned about the mower tipping if I go through ditches I go in perpendicular.
