What equipment will you be using? 25 hours for 4 people sounds like too much to me.

I agree - to much time spent with 4 guys - unless your push mowen everything which could the case but then you need to charge accordingly which then again, if you under contract for x amount for all these homes - then you need to re-think your time frame, buy larger equipment or change your routing to be more effiecient.

I did 40 accounts last season on Friday's with a 3 man crew in 8-9 hours. They were in three subdivisions right next to each other. Most were done with 21" honda's with a few done with a 42" Walker. I loved Friday's- my most profitable day of the week!! Hope this helps- good luck
