You guys are spot on! (route density)
Example: (3000 - 4000 s/f lawns)
treat 5 lawns per hour
charge an average of $39.00 per lawn
material cost per lawn = $4.00
total material cost = $20.00 per hour
revenue per hour = $195
net $175 per hour
6 hours of this = $1170
The above numbers are merely examples.
I realize some app's take longer (like when you have to also spot spray), but it's nice to be able to treat 3 - 5 lawns per hour when possible.
Bottom line -- route densities (profit) vary from company to company.
