Usually a mechanic's lien is for people who actually fix something such as mechanics, roofers, carpenters. Surely though there is a type of service rendered lien OP could use if the homeowner won't pay. It would be a shame to take something like this to a small claims court.
Yes you could sue for a $40 grass cutting because it would most certainly be worth your time, or you could just start charging her $5 extra per mowing making back the original $40 overtime plus some. Just make sure to get paid upfront before mowing the lawn again.
There is a lovely product that many have tried and have had success with. It's called Slap-a-hoe. Works wonders.
Fuck it. Refuse to leave until you receive payment, and threaten to call the cops.
Perhaps she didn't want to pay you for cutting her lawn OP... Maybe she showed you where the key was for something else. I have 70s porn music playing in my head... Picturing a sweaty, shirtless landscaper and a pool boy tending my ummmmm property. Yeah, my property.
