Hi everyone, ive been working for my self for three years now. I started out as a handyman and people were asking me if i cut lawns. So i would do handyman workin the morning and do a few lawns here and there and realized i liked cutting lawns. Ive went from 7 lawns in my first year to near 30 now. Ive been doing aerating and fertilizing as well. I must say i really like the workaaqy

One thing about mowing, everyone does it and there’s not as much money to be made as their used to be.
