We do a fair bit of general gardening work and tend to get to know clients pretty well as we are on site a lot longer than the average lawnie. We did a gardening job the other day and the garden beds were full of clippings. The client never gave permission for dumping of clippings and she has a green waste bin and a garden bag service anyway. I shook my head and told her we would quote lawn mowing but she is old school loyal.
We did do a lawn mowing quote for a retirement village who were whinging about the price their lawnie was charging. Now normally I won't quote if the only beef was price but this was another clipping dumper (hidden under bushes no less) and the cuts weren't great. So in went my quote. Didn't ask what the previous lawnie was charging though because it is irrelevant to my quote.
None of these lawns are great so a mulching rotary would be fine. I guess running a 28inch MEY and dumping clippings is quicker.
