Now, a safety expert from North Carolina's coast wants to make sure he stays safe as he starts his business. Nick Gutermuth is a former safety expert who had his own lawn mowing business in his youth. After seeing the story on ABC affiliate station WWAY, he wanted to help this young man by gifting him with earmuffs to protect his hearing from the equipment and glasses to protect his eyes from any flying debris. So, WWAY teamed up with ABC11 to get him the equipment. Q'yaron is now cutting lawns within the city limits of Fayetteville. His prices start at $20 but vary depending on the size of the lawn. If you'd like to hire him to cut your yard you can reach out to his mother's email.
