I think you're being a bit hardline with your notion of consistency. And 10 services is neither daunting, nor difficult. Every single one of those can be explained, even if only to say "Concrete Edging: We cut that perfect edge, ensuring a beautifully clean, visual break between your lawn and the sidewalk. We even clean up the mess, leaving you with nothing to do but enjoy the view".

If a customer calls you, does the conversation go like this:
Customer: Hi, do you do lawn maintenance?
LCO: Yes, we do.
Customer: Great! What does that entail or include?
LCO: Well...you know...we do lawn maintenance. We, uh, maintain the lawn. And stuff.
The answer, of course, is that it better not go that way. 10% content per page is abysmal. Words need written. Without words, you really have nothing to rank.

Again, it's not difficult at all. Work the city/town/suburb keywords in to the content. Create specific, localized, pages. Add them to alt tags. The photo gallery page? Was a picture taken in [city]? Tell us that. Telling us that tells Google that.
