This thread was a good reminder to check my times on my properties - something I had gotten away from doing this season.
I've been keeping notes in my log book of total "cut" time (mow/trim/edge if applicable/blow) and taking a photo of the front and back lawns.

I'm pretty much at my limit, so I'm going to sit down and review which lawns may not be as profitable as I would like and go from there.

One thing surprised me today on my "city route". I have 4 cuts in one stop - all four on a corner.
It took me 50 minutes from the time I turned off the ignition until I got back in the truck and I make $98 between the four of them. There are lawns in the suburbs that take me 45 minutes that only pay $35/$40.
(These are 21" mower times - solo operator BTW)
