There are a lot other factors to consider. Big, small, or whatever is only a term as stated by someone before me. Look at production possibilities of adding a crew. Don't simply look at additional lawns possibly mowed. Look at diversification of services. This will allow you to sell your existing clients more services as well as selling more profitable services to clients that mow their own lawns. These are just a few things to consider.
