I have a small landscape business in one of the worst economic cities in the US, Cleveland. I work full-time for a non-profit and I landscape in the evenings and Saturdays. I have one f350, 1 52 inch scag, mantis, hedge trimmers, Stihl f110, Stihl BR600, 2 sprayers and a handful of hand tools, and a 33" toro. I will gross about $20,000 and probably net $14,000, since I work by myself. I had a partner, but it did not work out, so I went on my own this year. The key for me is to only have 10-14 customers and always be selling the side projects. Maintenance is cash flow, side projects is the profit. Additionally, I have had about 10 years experience working for a landscape company, and that really helped. I hope this helps you. Work hard, maintain your equipment, and stay organized with your clients, bills, and bottom line. I made an excel spreadsheet, where I drop in my expenses and work (revenue) and I always know how I am doing. That is real important.
