Due to record rainfall, we're behind in our mowing schedule. We're unable to use our mowers while the ground is saturated and the long grass takes longer to mow. Our crews are working hard to catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

The current value of ROI is $10,000

Purchased 10 years previously, administration rate is 18.75%.

Administration fee ($10,000 x 0.1875) is $1,875.

Therefore the refund payment ($10,000 - $1,875) = $8,125.
