    I Have been in the lawn mowing bussines for about 2 years so im still a newbie.Well i posted out 300 door hangers on sunday and had a ladie call me back asking me if i could give her an estimate on how much it would cost to Thach her lawn front and back.I hate to turn down work under any condition so like a dumb A$$ i said i would.(By the way i dont even have a dethacher lol) So now that im a little in over my head i turn to you gies for advise.
    What do you all charge for dethatching?
    Is there any money in douing it?
    What do you do?
    Does any body have a cheap one in or near wooster ohio?
    I have a 48'' toro proline floating deck if that helps know what kind of dethatcher i need.
    Input greatly appriciated.
    Thanks Mike
