How much gross profit are you averaging per customer? Do you have a goal you want your customers to be at? My goal this year is $2000 per customer average. Some will be more than others. That $2000 is not gross sales, there's a difference.

Example if doing solo of gross profit:
Mulch job=$1000 (customer pays=gross sale)
mulch cost=$300
Gross profit is $700

Are you saying the mulch is $300. Meaning you only charged for aprox 20-25yds of mulch. Or you applied 5yds of mulch and spent 4hrs labor on job. Your truck and trailer didnt cost anything, Advertising cost isnt there? I would have it broken down a little more detailed than that. ie: gas=$6 advertising=$2.85 Rental of Bobby G's shovel and gift basket = $Free etc... Sorry could'nt help myself.

Around $1,000 for me but I will be doing more landscaping this year so I'm shooting for $5,000.

In NJ avg. for a residential for me would be about 2200.
$45X30cuts $1350.00
Fert Program-450.00
Spring and/or fall cleanup +-400.00.
Some people are more if they mulch etc.
Some are less but overall it is a good avg.

I'm talking about gross profit, not gross sales.

The definition of gross profit...Gross Profit equals Revenue minus Cost of Goods Sold. It identifies the amount available to cover other operating expenses

The mulch was just an example.

What about others here?

Do you set goals? Have a budget?
