'It Makes Them Feel Good About Themselves': Kansas Man Mows Lawns For Free

May 5, 2023

A man in Kansas is using his lawnmowing business to do some good in the community.

When he sees a lawn in bad shape, he knocks on the homeowner's door and offers to take care of the lawn for free.

Spencer has owned a lawn care company in Wichita, KS, for 11 years now. His team maintains about 40 properties per week.

About a year-and-a-half ago, Spencer saw a few videos of lawn care professionals mowing lawns for free.

"That's pretty cool, I thought — maybe I can start a YouTube channel and do this once a week," he said.

He began knocking on the doors of homes whose yards were in desperate need of lawn care and filming the work using a camera on a tripod.

Today, SB Mowing has over 1 million followers on YouTube.

In one video, he knocks on the door of Mark Edens, a veteran who served 9 years in the army.

"I got thousands of comments from people saying, 'hey, how can we donate to this man? We'd love to help a veteran out'," Spencer said.

After finishing his lawn, Spencer returned to surprise Mark with $10,000 in cash.

Spencer says that he is able to take care of several lawns a week for free, although some of the more difficult jobs take several days to complete.

"I'll be there from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and some take several days to finish," he said.

"The number-one thing that people tell me when I get finished is, 'Oh my gosh, it doesn't even look like my house anymore'," he noted.

"It makes them feel good about themselves, and where they live."
