    I actually have a good idea. What I want to do is offer people a free summer of mowing if they pay $21.95 / month. It's kind of like AOL and Compuserve. They would get unlimited service at a low monthly rate of $21.95. Think about it - no one else is offering this service. It would destroy all the competition and make customers happy. They won't expect a good job - therefore, I can keep this Murray 21&quot; and my electric weed eater and blower. <p>Have any of the rest of you tried a low monthly rate ($21.95). I will mow the yard a max of 3 times a month (with full service). Also, like internet - they can get the service any time they &quot;dial-up&quot; between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. <p>Feel free to use my idea - I'm sure it will provide you with many clients and service!!!<p>Thanks,<br>Grasboy

    I wouldn't unload my equipment for that price if I got that much each week. I feel you are way to low.<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/elm/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

    LOL, if you come to my town expect an unfriendly welcome!!! Gee I hope this was a joke, but if not, give it a try. I guarentee Jenny Craig will hire you as a spokesperson by the end of the summer after you've pushed 1000 yards and not eaten worth a s$44!<p>Funny Guy!

    This is NO JOKE!!! None of you seem to see the incredible client potential! Sure, I may start out a little rough - but so did America Online! Just look at them now! They are a multi-billion dollar business. The most successful part will be the fact that they (my customers) can call me any time of the day they need me. Unlike you all - who dictate when you will cut and on your terms. I will be open to the customer. <p>My other option is $45.00 / month for UNLIMITED services. These include, but are not limited to :<p>1)Mowing<br>2)Edging<br>3)Weed Whacking<br>4)Bush trimming<br>5)Weed pulling<br>6)Leaf Raking<br>7)Dog poop clean up<br>8)Flower planting<br>9)Aeration<p>It'll be just like the internet - &quot;Call me up, and I'll clean you up!&quot; -&gt; That's my business moto. Are there any other suggestions you all might have for my business? It is in the Florida area.<p>Thanks,<br>Grasboy
