Man who travels U.S. providing free lawn care services stops in Albuquerque

News

Last summer, KRQE News 13 introduced viewers to Rodney Smith. He cuts grass, free of charge, for the disabled, single moms and the elderly. This year, he’s giving back to veterans. 

Wednesday, he cleaned up an Air Force veteran’s yard in the Foothills. 

“I’m trying to encourage others to step up and do more for the veterans. It doesn’t have to be with lawn care. It can be other ways, but my way of showing thank you is with a lawn mower,” Smith said. 

Smith also encourages kids along the way to join his “50 Yard Challenge,” mowing lawns as an act of kindness in their own communities.
