    What do you guys that have big parking lots do for patching pot holes??? Do you charge the account or do you pay for it yourself????? If you charge them what is a fair price per hole????

    I'm with you, submit an proposel for filling there pot holes...payup

    Here is what you do, you give them an bid for patching there pot holes,
    seal-coating, and striping the lot and for the lawn servive too.
    Take care of all of there grounds maintenance needs.
    Why, because the lawn service and paving(seal-coat biss) probably offers snow removal in the winter too, so why have 2 or 3 contractors when you can hire one that can take care of your needs..

    Pot holes are considered "General Wear and Tear". Asphalt is not an impermeable indestructible substance, and in the winter the water seeps down into the cracks, freezes and causes the asphalt to bubble. When you plow, they items are naturally kicked up plus traffic all cause the pothole to form and eventually get worse.

    Now if you take out a piece of asphalt curbing with your plow, I would arrange to get them replaced at yur expense.
