Lawn Boy by Gary Paulsen

One day I was 12 years old and broke. Then Grandma gave me Grandpas old riding lawnmower. I set out to mow some lawns. More people wanted me to mow their lawns. And more and more. . . . One client was Arnold the stockbroker, who offered to teach me about the beauty of capitalism. Supply and Demand. Diversify labor. Distribute the wealth. Wealth? I said. Its groovy, man, said Arnold.

If Id known what was coming, I might have climbed on my mower and putted all the way home to hide in my room. But the lawn business grew and grew. So did my profits, which Arnold invested in many things. And one of them was Joey Pow the prizefighter. Thats when my 12th summer got really interesting.

Maple Grove teen’s lawn-mowing business takes sharp turn

Lawn mowing is big business. In some neighborhoods, the competition is fierce. Landscaping companies with huge mowing machines can mow multiple lawns in a single day for a reasonable fee. But that doesn't mean an enterprising teen can't do well as an independent lawn mower with the right motivation, marketing plan, and equipment. There are a few reasons why your child may find work as a lawnmower even in a competitive field. Here are just a few:.

Mowing lawns can help kids earn money during the spring and summer months. Some families are too busy to care for their own lawns. Others would rather spend that time with family or pursuing a hobby. Either way, they require the help of others. Lawn care enables kids to have their own business or team up with friends. They can work locally, set their own hours and spend time outdoors.

If you are a teenager who wants to start their own lawn mowing business , you can get by with a lawnmower, a rake, and an edger or weed-wacker, and chances are that you already have all of that equipment sitting in your parents' garage. Since you have the tools already, there is only one question left to ask yourself: "Do I have access to a truck? If you do have access to a truck, you can scour your city far and wide, mowing lawns from one tip of town to the other. If you don't have access to a truck, you are going to need to serve your local neighborhoods—places close enough for you to push your lawnmower. Back when I was a kid, I used to rake leaves for extra money. I had what I considered the perfect strategy at the time.
