Well from what I have been seeing on here ad in my area I see one of two things happening.
1. There will continue to be the idiots who take these jobs and don't know any better or
2. There are going to be A LOT of overgrown lawns in the nation. lol.

I mowed a neighbors lawn, front only a few times last year, told her I would do it for free she insisted on giving me $5, I think she thinks I am broke. I would have been broke if I had to drive to her house, thank God I only had to push the mover 50ft. to get there.

Who's doing these? I wouldn't cut ANY yard anywhere for $12 CASH same day even. They must have been laughing when they were typing up the ad. I don't think I could take myself seriously while writing that.

re

You could probably talk me into $12 cuts, but there would have to be a ton of them close enough that I don't have to load my mower each time (maybe one of those big ass town home communities) and you sure as hell wouldn't get pictures. At that point I could do 50-75 per day and I would be happy.

$10 per lawn would be okay with 40 lawns 20x20ft on the same street.

I can give you 25-30 per day. Missouri, Kentucky and Illinois. Usually one state per day. $12 up to an acre, 24 hour turn around including pics. I give Sundays off if I'm tired. 60 day pay cycle; 45 days with a 5% kickback.
