I do not have any equipment yet and am still in the process of finding out how much insurance will cost and licensing. I went out and mowed my lawn and the lady across the street came over and told me how good of a job I do on it. I said thank you and asked if she wanted me to cut her lawn next year. She said yes and that she did not like the way the other guy was doing it. I told her how much i would charge her and she said it was about 10.00 more a cut than she pays now. I said OK its up to you think about it and you know where i live if you change your mind. I went inside and about 30 is later she was knocking on my door and told me that my price was fair and asked if I would also cut it the rest of this season.It will take me about 30 min when i get a 48 walk behind including trimming and blowing and i am charging her 35a week. She does not water it at it does not grow much when it does not rain but most of the time I should be able to cut it once a week.
