Absolutely! Why not! Call them, say hello, ask how they are doing and see if they need your assistance this year.

Keep us posted on how this goes.

All of my residential customers are on a flat monthly fee, they are billed the week before the end of the month for that months service. I collect all payments the following week after I drop off the invoice at their door. I have a few customers that I figured out that I have to either have pay in advance or send reminder texts to them a few days before their invoice is due. Seems to work for me. What I like about the flat rate is you are guaranteed steady income 12 months of the year.

Since this is part time for me and most of my clients are bi-weekly then some occasional during the hot dry months in Oklahoma. I generally call them and let them know I am coming in a couple of days or something like that and they put a check in a envelope on the bottom of the back door. It has always worked out for me so far.
Since I do this more on the side but getting to the point I am actually looking to hire a second guy. I really try to keep my clients close to areas I travel hence from my full time to my home so I can hit them on the way home or on the weekends.

Here for a smal (less the 1/4 acre) goes for about 15 to 20 per cut, If you take 4.3 (weeks) per month the the price is 64.5 to 86. On a monthly rate I charge 55 to 75. Why lose money like this? People pay for the month, No rain=No mowing but still get paid. Bad part is when it does rain lots of work. This is every month for the year, I include fall and spring cleanup. The only extra charge is things like mulch. People love this when they realize that I will be there every week to clean up leaves, pick up thier gardens, limbs etc. They are used to people overcharging for cleanups, and such. I make more money and actually do less work.
