I would explain the benefits of mulching, and if you bag it, it just goes into a "landfill". Give her 2 prices, one inflated w/bagging, and the other being your normal rate for just mowing. Unless her lawn is ridiculously thick, anda fast grower, there is no need to bag. Im wondering if she wants it bagged because the last guy didnt do it regularly, and it wohld get too overgrown, and need to be bagged.
Couldn't have said it better myself....good advice.

Well it all worked out, she called me this morning and left me know she is okay with $45 a cut without bagging, so it wont be to long until I start mowing, I can already see the grass starting to grow.

I wish the grass was growing here. Still have almost a foot of snow on the ground.

Yeah...it has snowed more times here since the first official day of spring than it has all winter, but it wasn't even snow to lay on the ground.
