    I was thinking of charging $ 10 - $ 15 for mowing only on lawn service. How would this go over with homeowners ?

    a better idea would be to just mow them for free. then you wouldn't have the headaches of bililng and paperwork.

    I think it would go over great with the homeowners......that is until about august when gas hits $4/gal and your homeowners are wondering where your at cause you had to sell your mower to put food on the table. the only way I would charge $15 for homeowners was if they lived in a 4 unit building owning their unit and shared a yard yeah that would be a great idea.

    You obviously are a very sharp business man. However, I think you can make more more money per hour if you go on Craigslist and prostitute yourself out to other men. Then you can make 100 roses per hour.
