Frank Giaccio took his lawn-moving business to another level Friday when he mowed the yard of the most famous house in the country: the White House.

Frank wrote to President Donald Trump in August offering his services. He said, "Even though I'm only 10, I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for."

Frank even offered to bring his own supplies, writing: "Here's a list of what I have and you are free to pick whatever you want: power mower, push mower, and weed whacker. I can bring extra fuel for the power mower and charged batteries for the weed whacker."

Trump took Frank — who's now 11-years-old — up on his offer. Frank helped the White House groundskeeping crew landscape the Rose Garden.

Prior to Frank's visit, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters, "The president is committed to keeping the American Dream alive for kids like Frank, and we're all looking forward to having him here."

Frank told "Mornings with Maria" on Fox Business that getting to mow the garden was "pretty much the best day" of his life.
