    That was done with a 21", not the one in the photo, that one was uncovered by the string trimmer ( bone yard I guess) You could barely find that mower before we started.

    Back yard only $100 initial mow/clean up.Wkly rate after initial. Took less than 2 hrs.
    Was a good weekly acct until client fell & broke her leg. No job for her, no job for me.

    So she expects that newly found mower to mow itself? That makes no sense whatsoever.

    Can't work with a broken leg, so she can't afford my services. She'll be back with me next spring and I'll do the same thing all over again. That "new" found mower does not run, ( see photos 1 & 2 )

    Mine was only $40 bucks, it was a very small yard! I drove by this house friday with my dad the lady just let it grow real high again. She still owes me my $40 bucks too!!!
