depends on the week could be 20 one 25 the next. It's irrelevant really. but i've been in business 3 years. I have no one working for me yet, I chose to focus on having nice new equipment and other stuff then try to hire someone at this point, plus I was waiting until I was working 7 days a week in the summer before I hire anyone and I'd say I have the customer base with roughly 20 accounts to actually need someone else's help....

4,500 lawns = 4,500 cuts per season. Guess about 25 mowing weeks per season in Connecticut. 4,500/25 = 180(ish)

He is just taking his lawns and estimating each x per month for whole year, how many cuts in all he will do this season on them, really a rough guess you can never estimate properly that way, due to weather etc.
