    For flower gardens, or vegtable gardens?

    That's an awfull big tiller for a small area, (flower Garden), but for a bigger area it'll probably work fine.

    It could never hurt to ask if they would want it though, id say go for it.

    I bet that thing will do awesome on cable and phone wires lol…heaven forbid if the customer has a septic tank and you hit a lateral line!!!

    I would recommend writing something up for the customer to sign making sure your not responsible for anything that gets torn up.

    Call OneCall or 811 or whatever the utility marking outfit is where you are before you till or dig. It's free, and you are responsible even if the customer signs a waiver.
