Sometimes you need cash right away- emergencies come up, you are late on your rent, or maybe there is just a cool, new item that you want to buy right now. Doing yard work for friends, family, and neighbors can be a quick way to make a few bucks. You might not get rich doing yard work, but you are sure to make fast and easy money.
Everyone wants a nice looking lawn, and no matter the season, there is always yard work to be done. In the summer, you can mow grass. In the fall, you can rake leaves. And in winter, of course, you can shovel snow. There are trees, flowers, and bushes that can be planted in any season, and oftentimes people simply need their lawn cleaned up- trimming existing shrubbery or removing trash or debris from lawns can be a money maker too. All you need are a few bucks to advertise. Fliers throughout your neighborhood, and going door to door asking if people need yard care is a great way to start.
If you have your own lawn care tools, that is great. If you don’t, you could say in your advertisements that you can only work for people who have their own tools to start. Then, you could offer a low price to do their lawns. If you are fast, reliable, and friendly, your customers will be sure to tell their friends about the great job you did and you can even new customers in addition to repeat business. If you are a very good salesperson and worker, you could even parlay your search for fast and easy money doing yard work into a full-fledged lawn care business.
