    sounds like a good deal to me:laugh: But honestly how could you even afford gas at that price. Maybe he adds a fuel surcharge on to the price?

    I wouldn't, probably just a teenager mowing for the summer.

    I've had enormous luck with craigslist! Both sides of my business lawn care and handyman services. I've gotten some really good customers that are back again this summer.
