Mowing lawns is not a glamorous job, but can pay well for a summer job. In order to get more jobs, you will need your own lawnmower and way of transporting it unless you intend to stick to your neighborhood. If you have other tools that you can use such as a weed eater, edger, blower, and other hand tools then you can offer a full package. Start off offering to mow someone’s lawn for less than they are paying now and then word will spread. Once the demand for your service grows, you can raise prices.
