    for a couple reasons
    1) i have done it since i was 12, its quick easy money.
    2) i love the outdoors
    3) i wanted experience in owning my own business, because i plan on doing it when i am older.
    4) to put myself through college

    why do you do grass cutting?

    Trevor, you can mow 2-3 lawns by yourself before sundown if you start at 8? Pretty small lawns?

    I have 35 lawns left to do this week. Very possible, if it doesn't rain Sat or Sun. If not, I'll be finishing them up first part of the week. Nothing I can do about it. But, if it does rain, I'm sleeping all day.
    :D

    if it rains all weekend, i think i will have to sub the rest of mine out (only 15 to go, i gut the rest thursday b4 the rain) or get some employees that actually know what to do and how to trim,edge,cut!!! cause the ones i have now are just freinds looking for work, they do okay work, but i have to explain everything to them, and if i have to rush against the weather, i mine as well get someone who is experienced and can work fast and good and knows what they are doing. hopefully it wont rain for about 4 hours tommarow so i can get the 15done!!! im going to be sooo pist if i wake up tommarow morning and its raining!!

    OH YA, the ones i was talking about here i can knock off in about 45 minutes. There is no drive time between them, just 30 seconds down the street, unload, and cut em...I have 7 jobs all in that area. The others will take some time.


    trevor how many lawns do you have?
    just signed #39 yesterday, and i have another guy who i did the first cut so he could see if he liked it, so that will be #40. Like i stated in many other posts, my average per lawn is only about $26 so they are not big at all. These I am doing solo on a wednesday-thursday-friday gig. I was at only two days,but stretched em out to be able to do a better job. Those jobs will be at 2 days in 5 days when my hired help finally graduates.
