06' and 07' ran three crews. Slowly downsized to current day. I'm only mowing 7 small accounts and the rest is landscapinging. I now have 1 full time and will utilize 1 part time as needed. I have grossed more in the last 2 months Jan./Feb. in landscape than I would have grossed in 3 month of mowing 4 days a week 8-9 hrs a day.And I was one of the higher priced mowing crews in the area mowing with only 43 accounts. At my peak I was cutting 140+. I just got tired of counting on employees. And I am taking 2 vacations this year. I could not have done that if I was mowing 4 days a week.

Good Luck!
