    Not my strong area here but common sense just says adding watering as a service isn't something you can make money at.

    Unless I'm wrong your actually thinking about sticking around while the custmers lawn is being watered?

    Thats what irrigation is for and set up on a timer to come on as needed.

    For grass it would be pretty wasteful and time consuming,,, but for landscape plantings, there are a number of things that could and should be done to make water more efficient and plant friendly that would make your service worthwhile... I would never haul water however... :)

    it would be for plantings and trees that i maintain for several town squares. i know in my area i can get $55/hr including water loading time to do it and with the droughts we get in cincy this time of year alot of people want to protect their investment.
