    Have you tried a short greeting followed by introducing yourself and in a summary describing your services?

    Hi, I'm John, I cut grass.

    Not quite because that likely needs a little work, but just as an example.

    "Hey how are you doing today?"
    "My name is Robert Thompson and I am the owner of *insert your company name*. I was wonder if you might be interested in some of the lawn maintainance services that we provide?"

    If they say no, be sure to still be polite and positive. Ask if they would take a business card. Maybe they will change their mind in the future.

    Good luck.
