What's it all about?

If you already own a half decent lawn mower or you are prepared to purchase one, you could make a nice income setting up a Lawn mowing business. Alternatively, it is quite acceptable to use your clients Lawn Mower to carry out the task if either you do not have your own or you have no way of transporting it between clients homes. 

This is a great repeat business model as luckily, grass does not stop growing. Therefore, during the summer months, you will be cutting the same lawn approximately once per week. 

If you love being in the great outdoors, then this side business could be for you. With low start up costs and a very good earning potential with the advantage or repeat customers this is a top side gig.
