I would expect to take in more than an additional $100 per day for adding an employee. I don't see you factoring in taxes on your employee, or is that $12/hr with taxes included? Personally I would look at increasing my productivity by looking at my equipment and see if it's really the most efficient for the work I have as well as weeding out those accounts that are less profitable. I know things are different in different areas, but $25 per lawn seems really low to me. I have one lawn at that rate and it's tiny, less than 1,000 sq ft. And if you don't actually have the additional work, it's all a moot point anyway. In my case, I have part-time help in the summer for my mowing route (sons), as needed. It's usually only 4 or 5 hours a day for 2 or 3 days but sometimes more. I could do it without the help, but it's just easier for me to have help so I'm not busting my tail for 10 or 12 hours a day. Yeah I make less, but I'm willing to make that trade-off.
