Without reading all the posts after Procut's let me just say that I think he is right.

There just isn't enough money in residential mowing. We see guys with 4-5 trucks and think they are doing great, but time and again, I learn that they are up to their eyeballs in debt.

In my market, there is not a single maintenance company I know of that runs more than 2 trucks at a profit without using cheap, illegal labor.
