Some times you do not get full rate on your jobs but some overhead recovery is better than none cause the cost do not stop kust because you do not have work.

For me, residential mowing does not really make a profit but it helps fill in holes in the schedule, it does pay for OH and as such it helps. Residental also generates other work that is profitable.

I see that if you are not making money on residential your costs are too high, your equipment is not suited for residential, you are not charging enough, any combination or all.
