When I had major surgery 12 years ago, my wife hired a neighbor's son who was cutting yards in the neighborhood. He has finished college with a business degree. Has his own business and is still cutting my yard. He has a crew of three, counting the neighbor. They have five yards in a row on our street. They can edge, cut and flow away the grass for all five in less than three hours. For me to do my yard, was an all day job on Saturday and they do a much better job.
