Anybody rototill?

Well, we have a "big" rear tine toro-tiller, and dont use it... So dose any one till peoples gardens and yards? I know that people do alot with tractors, but what about gated yards?

So, what and how would you charge? Charge by area or time?

Sounds like a good idea, just watch out for sprinklers!
