    one of my little brothers wants to start mowing grass this spring. he is 15 and lives in a neighborhood with maybe 30 houses that would take a 21" about an hour to mow. problem is though, my mom doesn't really want to let him b/c there is another lco in the neighborhood already. any suggestions for him?

    I love statements like this. Your trying to tell us that your 15 year old brother can cut the lawn for a single family home in less than 2 minutes with a 21" push mower. I want to see that!

    that comment is pretty childish.. anyway let your mother know that's how this type of work is . if he can do a good job on the lawns without service providers , then he will start to get the other guys stuff or they can work in the same development and both make $$$

    Mabye you could see if the local LCO neds help? He probrably would not let him run a mower at 15, but might let him help with cleanups, ect.

    A lot easier that dealing with taxes and everything at 15.

    What he means by his statement is that it takes about an hour to mow each of the 30 lawns with a 21" mower !!
