Being a newbie, please forgive my ignorance. I just want to start a simple lawn mowing service. I'm thinking of $25 or $30 per lawn and just want to use, for example, a "standard" John Deere riding lawn mower. Nothing too fancy. Think I can make it work? I live in Minnesota where there are many lawn service companies, but I just want a small piece of the action. Being able to make a reasonable living through the summer months would be excellent. Oh, one other thing, what is a "common" thing that "lawn mowing people", as my nephew refers to them, do in the winter to make a decent living? Thanks so much in advance for all answers/comments/suggestions. I have been reading this site literally word for word! Thanks!!!
