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!
If then God so clothe the grass, wich is today in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more [will he clothe] you, O ye of little faith? (Luke 12:28)

For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's. (Romans 14:8)
