What is "Landscape Maintenance" and "Landscape Trimming"?

I know what it is but what does FAS mean when they say it and what does it pay? Have a bunch of pending my acceptance orders but I don't know what the landscaping part of it means or what it pays. Anyone have any ideas? Do they want me to do a full landscaping job or something quick? Do they want like a spring clean up?

You should ask. Usually landscpaing and lawn are one "act" and then you can get piad landscpaing debris under a different line item. I would however say it may be client specific, and you should be asking them and requesting the description in writing, not us.

I accepted the orders. Just going to clean up the yards and mow the wet grass and take pics and hope they pay me.

How do you guys enter into these contracts and not negotiate fees before signing a contract????

No wonder everyone is getting ripped off.

I do $12.00 grass cuts. Just have to make sure the machines clean themselves out before you put them back on the trailer

I was a FAS vetran for 10 +years. PUSH BACK You are behaving JUST like they want you to. They are also making it like Slaveguard where there is NOT going to be a person to talk to They issue the work order you go do the work and get shafted when something is un clear. This business miodel is what is going to be their DEATH This is what I was saying when I bailed years ago. DO NOT allow them to push you around ! Call in go through the work order number sequence and leave a message or ask to talk to a team lead. Basically it is bush trimming and tree trimming. I had work orders that would hang there waiting for personal property releases for 4 days. MAKE DAMN SURE you get a personal property release when you do a trashout. NO Personals release NO TRASH OUT save the release on an external hard drive and if there ever becomes an issue you are free and clear to tell them to piss off because they authorized it
