Teens and Mowing Lawns

Lawn Care can be a Good Job for Kids

Lawn Mowing can be a Good Job for Kids

Is lawn mowing a good job for kids?

It definitely can be, but there are a lot of things for you and your teen to consider.  The job does have great flexibility, allowing your teen to fit work in around school, activities and a social life.  Mowing neighbors lawns also gives your teen a client base of sorts.  People that need their lawn mowed also need their kids babysat, their sidewalk shoveled in the winter and/or other random tasks your teen can do year round!

It’s also an outdoor job that keeps your teen close to the house.  Lawn mowing also pays surprisingly well in most places.  Most neighbors will pay $10-$20 for their lawn to be mowed, that’s a good amount of money for a teenager.  And grass grows all summer so there should be a solid amount of work.

There are downsides.  Safety is a big issue with lawn mowing, it’s your job as a parent to make sure your teen can be responsible with dangerous equipment.  Mowing will not be an option in every neighborhood as there may be a teen who has the market cornered.  The job also depends on good weather, so if you live in a rainy climate or a dry climate, jobs could be hard to come by.   This job is best in great climates like California.
