Hey everyone! I'm a 14 year old kid and I'm really liking mowing lawns for people. Right now my parents are driving me around with my gear in the back of the station wagon. I have 10 clients and am staying busy. I'm getting ready for fall by buying a backpack blower and getting a few more rakes and bags. But for now I'm just spending my Summer mowing lawns and playing baseball.

Hi Perry,

Welcome to our forum!

How far apart are your customers? Is it possible you can get them within walking distance of your house?

Hey Steve,
Yeah I have three customers a couple blocks away, and many more just a five minute drive. But I've had to turn down two people so far do to the distance.

Is it possible you could set up some kind of trailer that you can pull with a bicycle? Would something like that be helpful or no?

Maybe something like this setup?

Yeah I've looked into it and might try to hook up a trailer system, or just wait til I can drive.
