    Well, I'm a middle schooler and I'm thinking about making my own summer job. Lawn mowing wieghs strongly on my mind. So, I'm thinking about lawn mowing. It's not gonna be some high industrial thing, just some average yards in my neighborhood. Just enough for a few extra bucks. I've got a Stanley push-behind mower. I just plan on mowing the front and back, no trim or anything like that.

    I need to know what I need to do before I start, at what to expect when I start.

    What you need to know, sounds to me like your off to a great start-just mowing works for us you might get your high residentials to sign a contract say cut only no trimming this will keep your work so you won't have any scrubs to push in on your turf. best of luck
