    I live in a rather country type area and have been trying to advertise garden tilling as an early spring service to get off to a good start. Haven't had many takers but I guess that is because not many people actually have time to tend to a garden anymore but I hate to just see my tiller sitting there.

    Have any of you ever tried this or anything like it?

    I provide that service also. I do a few gardens but the majority of mine are the people who want their lawn tilled up and either re-sown or sodded.

    I do tilling once in a while to customers that have ripped up their landscapes, or want to plant some grass. I probably break out the tiller maybe 3 to 4 times a year, if I am lucky.

    Too much tilling is a hard way to make a living and will age you prematurely. Look for more riding jobs.

    We offer it in early Spring. Some years it is pretty good and other years it is almost nonexistent. I think most people end up realizing that they need to own a tiller if they are serious about gardening and they just go ahead and buy one.
