    Why not? If you need the cash and have the time. I took on an account of a lady that lives out in the country, less than 10 minutes out from my regular mowing route when I was already full on friday, why? Because I told her that if she didn't mind me mowing at 630 am I wouldn't have a problem adding her. By the time I'm done I'm alrdy on schedule to mow my first client at a reasonable time. Takes an hour and it gets me $110. I'm making $ before most people are even out of bed, Early birds get the worm.

    Shows the value of the test run, or at least seeing the property in person, over the google earth approach. I would have guessed it to be profitable as a weekly account. We have several in that range that range from 2.5-4.5 man hours. I wonder if the owner was honest about the acreage
