How many lawns?

How many lawns are knocking out on average in a day.

This will be for guys running a 2 man crew, doing properties between 5-15k and having them on a decent route.

We can do around 15 average sized lawns a day, which is around half acre around here, when its a full scheduled day, with blades turning at 8am sharp and heading home at 6:30 or 7. If the day has a couple big ones, it may be less. It just depends

That is about the size lawns we take care of. We had 18 done when we finished today at 2pm. Tight route with multiples at every stop really helps.

Run a two man crew and we take out on average 27 lawns a day. The biggest being a little over an acre which rare here , we have two of them, and the average being somewhere in the 3 to 6K range. This includes mowing trimming and edging, blowing on all and most include shrub trimming and weed spraying in the beds. We also work four 10 hour days on the maintenance part of the business.

13-14 with my 2 guys in 8.5 hour day from loading at shop to unloading.

With me and one guy we can do a few more since I'm a little faster on the mower.
