    Holy cow. Today I saw a kid, a young kid, 13 or so. Pedaling a mountain bike, with a pretty sweet trailer attatched to it. In that trailer, he had 2 21" mowers, 2 trimmers on a rack, trash can and a blower, and some gas cans. I'm sure he just puts the grass in trash bags and leaves them on the curb, which if he was mowing my lawn, I would be cool with that.

    I was very impressed, you go get em kid, possibly a future millionaire.

    When I was younger, I remember a 14 year old friend of mine who would push his push mower to each yard and ended saving $6k that summer. Thoughs are the smart ones....

    I had a 14 yr old trying to take some of my properties last summer. He does really good work and if he was old enough I would hire him. But the young kids cutting grass are hurting our business and putting grave responsibility on the homeowner. Iif that kid cuts his foot off or damages the property the homeowner is responsible for everything. I admire the spirit of getting out and working but in today's society it is not safe or reccomended to hire or employ anyone who is not liscensed and insured
