Who thinks they have got the best or worst lawn care route? We have a route that has 80 accounts within a 15 mile radius of each other. Its done over 3 days tuesday wednesday and thursday enabling a four day weekend. Keeping it tight keeps time and running costs down. Whats yours like?

sounds very smart and efficient...do you have employees? i only ask because 3 days a week doesn't seem like it would pay an employee enough to stay happy

80 accounts in 3 days.

26.7 accounts per day.

In a 10 hour day = 22.47 minutes per account.

No travel time.

I have 81 homes within a 2 mile radius for mowing. All my mowing is in 3 neighborhoods. I will not even take a new mowing account if its not within one of the 3 neighborhoods.... just isn't profitable to drop the trailer gate to cut one $30.00 lawn.
